Finished project and buttonmania September 21 2015
One bonus of being laid up for the week with a bad back is that (after the initial not being able to sit up phase) there was plenty of knitting time.
Vitsippa hat was a fun knit. From the diagonal stem pattern at the bottom to the flower stems at the top, the constant change in design kept it super-interesting.
I used the new Skein Queen Ullvärme Swedish wool in Gin and Chocolate Mocha.
Vitsippa hat is by Joji Locatelli - a prolific knitwear designer from Argentina and I'll certainly be seeking out more of her designs.
The pattern appears in Spring 2015 Pompom magazine. If you're looking for a copy, I'll have more in the shop by mid-week.
Another new addition to the shop - Buttons!! Aren't they gorgeous?
High quality European-made buttons from a supplier who is extremely passionate about buttons and gets them made to her own specification.
Made in a variety of shell, coconut, resin and bamboo, these buttons make a perfect finishing touch for a treasured knitting project.
