selbu modern

sometimes i’m really desperate to finish something. mostly because i’m eager to start something new. this time it was for two reasons: i really wanted a new hat, i’ve been wearing my old pom pom beret all winter and really wanted a new and more colourful one. i completed this new beret last night at around one a.m., washed it and blocked it using a plate, put it on a towel next to the radiator and this morning… ta da! it was ready to wear! thanks to malin for taking the pictures during our lunch break today.

the pattern was easy to follow and it was a very enjoyable knit. i’m very happy with the result, i think the colours are wonderful and the pattern is very beautiful. i like the yarn very much also, it’s pleasant ot knit with. i’m not very sensitive to scratchy wool, but this does itch just a little, but not enough to bother me.

i still have quite a lot of yarn left, i might knit a pair of matching mittens. but probably not this winter.

i managed to take some photos of my selbu modern during my lunch break a few days ago. i’m posting them now mainly to show you the colours. however, the photos turned out rather dark despite placing my knitting in the window. i’ve progressed quite a bit since, though. i’ll try to get a new photo next week.
