To engage in fanciful daydreaming.

This is a very snug fitting beanie. It does require some sewing to attach the leaf shape at the top of the hat… but don’t be scared off by that!

I really do love this colour way. And it is a great way to use up just one skein of yarn!
I got this yarn at a trunk show for the dyer at Baaad Anna’s Yarn Store. I was immediately enchanted by the dyer’s colour choices.

Thank you to my friend Lian for taking the photos for me while we adventured through Pacific Spirit Park. It was a really special day (We went home after, and I taught her how to use natural dyes!)

Come see my fanicful dreaming at
