WhatIWore: I love having something in my closet that inspires an outfit. Today’s look is based off my recently finished fair isle knit hat! Recent as in twenty minutes before we took these photos!! Normally we do our shoots in the morning as we head off to work, but this afternoon Adam is having some quality daddy-son time so I’m able to grab a couple hours of writing and editing photos.
But can we talk about the hat for a sec? It’s actually all scraps or small skeins I had hanging out in my stash! It came together pretty quickly too! The top is a very pale pink used for my first fair isle sweater (seen here) and the blue and black are cashmere (so soft! so lux!) that I bought a couple of years ago right before I totally burnt out on knitting for the season. I used a sweater I saw in the J.Crew catalog as inspiration for the pattern and just sort of made things up as I went!
