Very suitable for fall, non? AK's actually been wearing this toque for a few weeks now, but this was my first chance to photograph it. He's been off guiding on the ocean and in the mountains, putting the hat through its paces. I'm happy to see it is holding up very well, and despite the extremely cushy, soft wool, does not seem to be pilling so far. Always a good thing.



There was some fun dyeing experiments this weekend - including some attempts at dip dyeing. Will share shortly. Also, thanks to those who snapped up the natural dye fabric packs in the shop. I didn't end up getting any more in there with all the packing and running around. I've decided actually that I'm going to close up the shop for the week. Between finishing packing, heading out of town for work a few days this week, and then the final move next weekend, I think it's probably my best bet to curb my stress level wherever I can. Thanks for understanding.

Now I think it's a good idea to get in a quick walk before the sun slips below the hills. Sunset is just shortly after seven these But at least the sun is out today - it will seem much darker once the grey days become a lot more common.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Don't know if the fog hit you today - it was amazing walking half in bright sun and half in bright mist/fog along the seawalk this afternoon!

Love the toque.

oh I missed out on the fabric packs....maybe it was the time difference.
Can you please let me know when you are putting some back in the shop as I'd love to buy some from you.

Nice beanie!
