A Frolick On The Knitting Trail

043Ready , set ….

Hats on !
045Before 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.

 There was a few moments of a brilliant sunbeam, and Molly models

wintery white with powder blues  of

the Chalten Beret  and Tartan & Tweed Mitts

Then we found a fabulously mossy tree log on a very steep slope . . .

and a Dicey Highland Hat

 Then hilariously  Molly began to slide off  of the wet moss . . .

… 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.

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 (although fuzzy in low light of the forest) … of the Bohemian Raven Goths!

Thank you Molly, Maya & Rosanna, for wonderful knitwear photoshoot on the knitting trail! xx

Dicey Highland Hats !

jenjoycedesign©Dicey Capjenjoycedesign©Dicey Cap 2There are three shapes now, and all modeled together here in one ensemble. First of the three, the latest shape added to the pattern and gaining in popularity,  the Dicey Highland Cap (mentioned over in this post)  with or without a toorie (that is the felted wee pom pom) . . .

And last, the Dicey Highland Beret,  finished with an i-cord beret loop, and all together much more modest and a bit less voluminous than the bonnet . . .

So there you have it.  The pattern is complete with the three shapes: Bonnet , Beret, and Cap.  If you would like to try to knit up maybe one or two (or three or four) of them for Christmas gifts like I am,  you can find the pattern available, once again, over HERE .

And after all the photo shooting, we settled into making a quick batch of raspberry moon pies for my nieces to take home, as is our tradition.
