the rain finally let up today. since i'm on a deadline and had to work all day, i didn't get outside with my family until after dinner, as the sun was going down.
dusk usually isn't my favourite time of day. twilight tends to give me a migraine, to be honest.
but in this city, one cannot take a reprieve from imminent downpour for granted.
so i made the best of the waning light by attempting a knitwear photo shoot. (many thanks to the wife who made the babes wear their hats).
(pattern: quynn by wooly wormhead)
i made these acorn-shaped hats and i love them. were i not working from the stash, i would have bought some lovely self-striping yarn. but these will do.
i love the way they look on my babes.
the pattern was pretty fun so i can't wait to make more. this time, i plan to experiment with 'manual' striping from my scrap basket.
but for now, it's lights out.
