I couldn't resist!
When I saw the cover of Piecework, I loved the little Fair Isle bonnet by the Fair Isle guru Alice Starmore. I was trying to figure out where I could get Piecework, when I walked into my LYS and there it was! I couldn't believe it!
Although I have removed the sleeves of the hubby's Thwaite Jacket in preparation for shortening..........and I had intended to finish this before moving on.......I couldn't resist.
I obviously didn't use the yarns called for.....I used Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift. You can see in the photo that I decided to make the centre highlight rows a little darker blue than in the original as to me it seemed just a bit too light - personal choice. The ear flaps were done with short rows, and were attached to the hat after the rib was done.
So I used Royal, Cobalt, Clyde Blue and Teviot for the blues, Madder and Crimson for the reds, Yellow Ochre, Mustard and Gold for the golds. I quite like how it came out.......now to find a baby to model it!
