architecturally speaking...

... until I visit the Seattle Central Library, this will keep a space in my heart.

Koolhaas, knit in Malabrigo Merino Worsted, Marròn Oscuro colorway,
on size 7 & 9 needles.


Capturing the color of this yarn in photographs is nearly impossible for me. Whether indoors or out, I cannot get two shots that show the same hue and detail of the hat.

And since I can't escape the desire to share Spring with you, another gratuitous nature shot:

I LOVE the Koolhaas. That Malabrigo's got some pretty awesome stitch definition, eh?

And what a beautiful photo of the blossoms. I would frame that and put it on my wall if I were you!

P.S. No more nature shots. You're making me miss the Valley. :) (jk)

Beautiful job on the hat, the colorway really seems to be made for it. Pretty photo, it's nice to know spring is around somewhere, certainly not here yet, but I'm hoping. :)

It's such an impressive hat, that pattern is so pretty.
I love your nature shots! It feels so far away from here. :)
