Hats on !
Before setting out into the woods on my Knitting Trail, Maya, Molly & Rosanna chose three hats each out of my chest of knitted pattern prototypes, plus other bits, then we set out with Emma leading & me in the back with the camera.
Maya is wearing Vineyard Rows Tam.
And Molly models wintery white with powder blues of Chalten Beret ..
and Tartan & Tweed Mitts…
Rosanna in the recent infinity scarf I’ve been designing and making lots of lately…
… which will soon be available in pattern form.

goofingly striving for the essence of ” bohemian raven goth “
Then we found a fabulously mossy tree log on a very steep slope . . .
and a Dicey Highland Hat
Rosanna in the Vineyard Rows Tam and Molly in the Vineyard Rows Toque .
(Toque not yet written into a pattern, but soon!)
Hillariously . . . then Molly began to slide off . . .
Maya in the original Dicey Bonnet, a distracted Emma, Molly in Chalten, & Rosanna in Penny Candy Hat.
There was a few moments of a brilliant sunbeam ….
Rosanna balanced gracefully against a fallen tree . . .
… and no end to my demands while taking still another photo as we tried to cover trail …
and so a twenty minute trail walk turned to fifty.
Another Dicey Highland Hat . . .
We really had a great time, and for me this was the absolute highlight of the whole holiday family get-together, though it lasted less than an hour. I couldn’t be happier with the many great shots but I have to choose just some of them, though I just about died to discover how fuzzy the photos were in the low light of the forest. It seems I still have to learn how to use the camera’s settings for different lighting ~~ a New Year resolution!
