Rikke hat in burgundy bliss

Lately, I have been knitting quite a few hats using every ball of yarn I could get my hands on. After all, I knew that winter lasts forever in Berlin and sooner or later most of these hats would be lost in public transportation, lead a lonely existence in some drawer at school, or end up as a soccer ball or the like. Sigh …

Hence, I did not care about the yarn and most hats were made in acrylics to minimize the expected loss.

All was well, until last night when I cast on a hat with Drachenwolle. This is when I realized how I had missed out on knitting pleasure while knitting those hats with … well … rubbish …

Drachenwolle is probably the nicest yarn I have ever worked with. I won a skein – 320 m of semisolid burgundy bliss in 100% extrafine merino – about a year ago, keeping it for something special. But special was never special enough.

It was only when I saw the Rikke hat on Anyusha’s blog Dunkelbunt (probably translates as “dark intense”) that I knew exactly what my skein was meant to be.

I will take more pictures of the finished hat once there is daylight outside and not foggy grey when I come home from work. (However, the beautiful burgundy bliss might still be sort of bleeding as in picture above. Sorry for that).

Voilà! New pictures.
