God bless friends and coworkers who will tolerate twenty minutes of having a camera in their face in trade for a handknit item. Especially if it’s a coworker who’d been dropping interested hints about the hat I’d been working on, and who’s worn it every day since I gave it to him, even with loose ends hanging off it before I got a chance to weave them in.
(Thanks to Iron & Steam Espresso and the owner of the Hi-Lo Club, who let us wander in and shoot photos inside. The place is so gorgeous and the drinks are great. Check it out if you’re ever around Nob Hill!)
