Really love the way this turned out. Just in time for winter which is hitting hard at the moment.
I headed down to the closest seaside to my house to model this FO, Altona beach. Partner acted as my photographer on this occasion, insisting on leaving the camera on 'Auto'. I think the photos are great anyway! Don't let the sun fool you - it was fucking cold and we literally jumped back in the car after taking these. Luckily I had appropriate knitted accessories - what a crazy random happenstance!
- Ships and Seaside cowl. This was one of those patterns that I coveted the first time I saw it, then filed it away for future reference. Then I remembered about a particular yarn in my stash, cast on, and it was all over in a matter of days. It's essentially a knit loop. I enjoyed making it very much as you can just see yourself wearing it, it knits up so fast. I only had the two colours, so didn't follow the stripe sequence, but I would love to make another of these as per the pattern. The kitchener stitch didn't bother me at all, and any errors I may have made (as if I made any!) are hidden in the fuzziness of the yarn.
- Mario slouch hat. My execution of this pattern was far from elegant, but I think it looks fine and is entirely wearable. I like it with the cowl, not to matchy-matchy. Knit up in a couple of nights.
p.s. I'm sure you'd also like the the lyrics to I do like to be beside the seaside. You're welcome. I especially like "Tiddely-om-pom-pom!"
