When the snow melts in the Sierra mountains of California, the John Muir Trail becomes like a maiden blushing with the sweetest colors in nature, and from the frozen snow emerges delicate beauty to capture one’s heart. A classic springtime tam, with garlands of alpine flower motifs encircling a single wound-yarn button which is my own variation of a classic needlework button, and in colorwork motifs of my own design.
I have finished the prototype and am running at the rein to get the pattern finished and submitted before May. Yes, before the snow melts completely. Just wanted to give you a quick glimpse of what is coming ahead… and hopefully I can wrestle my two lovely nieces into modeling it soon.
Gorgeous! Looks like fine porcelain. I love it!
I saw this hat and gasped with awe! So beautiful. I have company for the next few days, i’ll be in touch next week!
Adorable, from brim to button!
Oh, so pretty!
Simply lovely, Jen!
The tam is so pretty and I love the accompanying picture of the snowdrops–inspiration always surrounds if we just make ourselves aware and the button is so special- a perfect topping.
Thank you so much! 🙂
