Have my Face and a new Hat!

Just a standard Wednesday night.

I finished this hat last night and as per my new goals for the year I want to finish more things and photograph them properly! First one for the year!

Self Portraiture is an interesting topic that I always feel a little awkward talking about, because I feel like I need to explain myself when I take a portrait. Selfie culture and rude anonymous tumblr asks are ingrained in my psyche. Well fuck it. I'm certainly not a good model but I quite like photographing myself because I know exactly how I want the images to look and what works for me. Nope, I didn't touch up my make up or my hair, after a 90 minute drive home from work I set up the camera and put the hat on. Nobody has time for that.

One problem with being your own model and photographer trying to get the focus right, another is not taking yourself seriously...

So yes! New Hat! It's knitted with 9mm double pointed needles with Morris & Sons Estate 14ply.
I created this pattern and this hat to give to a friend but I think it's going to be a bit big for her so I'll make a slightly smaller one.

Might put these up on the etsy store. We shall see! They are a fun quick hat to make.
