Recently I’ve been getting my knit on thanks the Kate Davies’ Book of Haps.
The book is fascinating and as well as the 13 modern designs based on traditional styles it also provides a concise history of the hap. Love the photographs Kate has found of people on the islands knitting, stretching them as well as wearing them.
I was drawn to the Happenstance Hap by Romi Hill which reminded me of a butterfly and looked like it would keep me warm in winter.
It was a fairly easy knit, although I did have to frog the lace border a couple of times before I was happy with it.
More knits to come…😘
