This blog is turning as much into a record of the minutiae of my life as a work of photographic creativity. This picture is firmly in the former category. It’s a watch cap I knitted for Martin, which I finished today. It’s knitted in a merino/cashmere/silk mix, and should therefor not be itchy, unlike the previous woolly hat I knitted him, which suffered a tragic fate at the hands of the washing machine. It’s the colour of milky coffee, which is what he wanted. I initially bought the wool to mend some socks, but he liked the colour so much I knitted a hat out of it as well.
It’s photographed on the staircase finial because Martin hates having his picture taken.
