Fair Trade.

I commissioned this painting:
Fox Knitter by Hailee Winter
by Doug & Kathryn's lovely daughter Hailee.
I loooooove foxes, and the painting!
We traded for a custom Totoro hat… she wanted one like this one, but the knitter had unfortunately not taken any notes or anything, so I had to try to figure it out.
I think it turned out pretty well…
Totoro Hat 1
Totoro Hat 2
These pics of Hailee (& Trixie!) were taken by Doug.
This the most complicated colorwork I’ve done,
mostly because I’m not usually a fan.
But I am a fan of Totoro! And Hailee! So there you go...
