A Wool Story
As I wrote in my last post, my trusty old Nikon D50 bit the dust.
But I finally bought a new [well, it's old really (used), but new to me] camera, and I'm glad because it means I can finally share photos of this beautiful hat I received from A Wool Story.
I don't normally accept c/o stuff, but when Meg asked me to try out this wonderful hat from her shop, I immediately accepted--in part because her hats are wonderful, but also because I really dig the concept behind her work, and felt like it needed to be shared. In particular, the process is pretty compelling:
Meg scours thrift stores for high-quality knit sweaters. She then carefully unravels them and uses the yarn to create these fantastic hand-knit hats. When I opened my package, I was really delighted with the quality. I also found it to be perfect for this time of year. It's cozy enough for cold weather, but light enough for transitional weather.
Please check out these lovely reclaimed hand-knit hats from A Wool Story.
