Nine Months of Sunrises

Last night, as we watched our annual New Year’s Eve movie, Jeremiah Johnson, I finished the pompom for my Colorado Sunrise Hat and sewed it on the tippy top. I thoroughly enjoyed this project last year. Once or twice a week I would rise early to greet the sun with my camera and tripod. I would then pick my favorite photograph and run it through an online color generator which would pull colors from the photo and create a color palette. Using those colors and Mary Jane Mucklestone’s book, 200 Fair Isle Motifs, I would select a motif and knit that sunrise into my stocking cap. It was great fun!
