The much anticipated Tectonic Hat patterns are finally available! This hat can be made in both knit and crochet. They use the same size yarn, yet they look different due to the stitch structure. The basic construction of the hats start with the body, move to the crown, and then the border. Worked in two contrasting colors, the hats are bold and trendy. It is possible to modify the color change sequences to better suit your aesthetics. The button seam allows a convertible style into 3 different styles; ponytail hole, flapper style and "classic." These hats were made in Anzula Dreamy, a luxurious blend of wool cashmere and silk. This fingering weight yarn is delicious to work with, and feels even better against the skin. The warmth of the finished hats is just right for indoor and outdoor wearing. Anzula offers dozens of stunning colorways, locate Anzula Dreamy at your local yarn shop! These patterns are available in my Ravelry store.
Very often when I take product photos, or docmentation photos, I set up my lights, my white "seamless" and I shoot. Often times it isn't "artistic" or it is meant purely for detail. I decided to change this up when I took my photo for the Spinzilla photo contest. I was thinking about my concept for this shot, and it hit me, "fiber is nourishment." Now this is purely metaphorical, but I decided to make it a literal statement in this photo; because that is what art is all about. I call myself a fiber artist, and I believe that is what I did in my spinning last week, and will continue to do in my future work. I hope you enjoy this fiber filled still life. Let me know what you think about it over here.
