Presenting . . . insert drumroll . . . my last finished knit of 2021, the Musselburgh hat.
It’s knit with Gauge Dye Works in the color Our Solar System. Those clever dyers calculated all kinds of scientific things to create self-striping yarn to represent the sun and the planets and their distance from each other.
It makes for a very versatile hat!
I started it back in August while we were in Iceland, right after I finished Hannah’s wedding socks. It was perfect travel knitting, both in the car and on the plane. I had to set it aside when my hand pain made knitting very difficult but I was able to get back to it in December and I finished it right after Christmas.
I haven’t worn it yet because I have a rule about not wearing hand knits until I’ve shared them with the blog. But! We’ve got the potential of a big storm at the end of the week and it might be nice to have a new hat to wear to celebrate.
I can’t decide which way I like it best!
