For some time I’ve been wanting to put together this third straight-sided shape to add to the bonnet & beret shapes of my Dicey Highland Hats pattern ~~ I’m calling it the  “Dicey Highland Cap”. Now have it done & dusted, and pattern is updated to include it !  All that is needed is a bit of fun with my nieces and a photo shoot for all three shapes, when they come this weekend to visit.

Speaking of Highlands, here, the California Highlands is having  a lovely slow turning of Autumn,  alternately misty & cool and bouncing back up to clear warm days.   Now we expect some rain and it will glue down all the lovely maple & oak leaves which have fluttered to the ground. I’m looking forward to some lashing blustering rain!!!  For now we’re still out walking every day, at least once !

Was just out on the trail knit-walking and  overlooking this …
