Of winter’s lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part,
Yet each one holds summer’s secret
Deep down within its heart.

Knit stickat Knitted Gray Cap 2013

This summer I visited a spinning mill called Solkusten (sunshine coast). I bought one skein of gray wool from the farm’s own sheep and a pattern for a knitted cap, knitted in the round.

I am pleased by the fact that I only bought one skein, that I now have used that skein and produced something useful. I use this every day right now, because it’s still freezing cold in Sweden. It will be a while until the snow piles melts and the icy patches, in some places very thick, disappears. I long for that day right now, I’m so through with winter.

But until then, I really like how my knitted cap turned out, with the ombre colour and the soft fleece.

    Love the yarn. It turned out well, it looks very soft and warm. I am currently knitting my father a hat in the round, though still at the early stages when I wonder if I will ever finish it!
