While the East Coast ...

... of the U.S. gears up for Storm Sandy (the "perfect" storm?), we are partly sunny here in the Pacific Northwest (although we're also set for a little bit o' rain over the next several days, but nothing like what's expected in the east).

I thought, in the middle of all of this stormin', I would share with you a recently completed Slouching Towards Tassels Cap - from one of my accessories' collection testers. Nicole (of The Knitty Gritty of Hooking Around blog) and I have been Ravelry friends for a few years; we read books together (she's the co-moderator of my Ravelry group) and swap fiber occasionally. I was really thrilled that on very short notice she managed to whip up this test cap - even though she's super busy with work, two small children and a husband. Check out this wonderful hand-spun goodness in an awesome colorway that does not speak to fall or winter at all:

She also did a really great job with the tassels, and her husband took some amazing photos (he has a small photography business, in case you were wondering):

Now doesn't that cap just make you all happy, despite the weather?


  1. It inspires me to crochet with my handspun. That hat is super sassy!

  2. It sure is a happy hat. What a great job she did and love her gigglin' photo shoot.

  3. Great color and I love the tassels - nice to have when the weather is gloomy!

  4. that hat is so cute, and I lvoe the tassels! Everyone goes for pom poms, but the tassels are a nice change of pace!

  5. I think the color is kind of looks icy!
