Leon's winter set 2017 - finished just in time

I finished Leon’s winter set and Skip took photos on Saturday, in a brewery, because that’s the way we roll. The set was started a little late, because I wanted to wait until the end of the Inspired by Islay club, and I was quite concerned that winter would come before Leon had a winter set for 2017. 

But the weather held through April, unseasonably warm and pleasant. It was so lovely having the Melbourne comedy festival with nice weather – like normally happens in Adelaide. The comedy festival finished last weekend, and  until this morning it was still warm. And then today winter came! I’m not the biggest fan of winter, but at least I know Leon will be wrapped up in an enormous amount of yarn, warm and cosy and so pretty.
 
The details of the hat: I took the chart from Singing Sands scarf, and put it into the pattern for Shore Street hat. I had to adjust the numbers by two for the increases, but after that it worked like a charm. It’s important to me that a set is matchy, matchy, matchy.
