orange olives hemp and wool

Beanie in SIOz hand-painted hemp and wool. Could not resist casting this on and playing with yarn -- OK -- there is nothing else quite like it -- soft, warm, lovely nubby bits of hemp which bloom and create surface interest. Toasty, but not heavy. Just a pleasure to wear and of course, to knit.

This colourway has red as well as orange in it -- the shot was taken in bright sunlight -- and there's a bit of pinkish purple in there with silver as the contrast. The green is accented with brown. Must make a note: need better camera!

There are some kick-ass hanks for orange semi-solid and some outrageous RED in this week's batch of hemp and wool. VERY RED SOY as well as BEETROOT to be knitted.

See you at the market!
