... 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?
