Boxed in

Beanie 2007.120 with Japanese Box

Double rib kid's beanie on 5.5mm needle using just under 50g of a plain olive green Twilleys Freedom wool (the last of the yarn donated at the Harlot Happening) and some variegated green Lang? 8ply knitted double donated by the Happy Spider.

An intensely satisfying improvisation over late night teev when it was too hot too sleep.

Looks gorgeous, Taph, lovely and cool (apart from being, you know, WOOL). Love that Twilley's Freedom.

I love the ribs and the way the colors circle around like that. It is beautiful. Is it that warm already? Our fall is taking its time getting settled in. It has been very warm for the past couple of weeks. Our crocuses are coming up, they usually come up in the spring. Poor little things are so confused.

Oh it's warm already. Unseasonally in the low 30s C - that's the high 80s where you are, Donna Lee. Only for a few days but a bit of a shock.

It was too hot to sleep so you picked up some chunky wool to knit with????What am I saying.....I've been known to knit on a sweater in the dead of summer....(sheepish grin)
