I was lucky enough to spend some time with Woolly Wormhead in Columbus this June. I always look forward to seeing her, not only is she a lovely person to be around, interesting, funny and charming, she is also an accomplished designer. Known for her stunning hats, Woolly takes shape and form and transforms them into gorgeous, wearable art.
She does so again in her latest book, Playful Woolly Toppers; 10 colourful hat designs to inspire your inner child. From cover to cover, Woolly shares her design aesthetic in a well-laid out, clear and visually stunning manner. From a practical level, the hats are all multiple sizes, unisex and well shaped.
This is a great little book – Woolly’s photography is interesting and tells a great story. Using her home as a background, the visual interest is captivating. If you don’t know about the amazing world Woolly lives in, you can read all about it here. Meanwhile, if you’re itching to get your hands on an autographed copy of this book, leave a comment below and tell me who you’ll knit a hat for (and why).
