Inspired by our autumn vistas: the honking of geese heading south, the big blue sky and the horizon line of evergreens separating one farmer’s field from another. We asked Edmonton designer, Jessie McKitrick, to help us create a tuque (original French Canadian spelling) using our Hat Trick Semi-Solid line: the knitter’s watercolours! And the play on words in the title is no accident. As our Canadian geese fly south to spend the winter on the beach, we imagine they enjoy the Beach Boys as much as we do!
