MistBLUE HAT & Galtee Challenge

Hi to all!!! You probably know that I am based in Ireland and love to knit, skike and do lots of other things. Like to have a long list TO-DOs.

Anyway, as my knees are not the best especially walking down the hill I decided to cheer up people who participate during event, including my beloved husband Sebastian. Therefore, while I was waiting for him 6h30min to finish 31km mountain walk, I captured some amazing atmosphere, winners and lots of emotions. During my waiting I was not getting bored as I knitted this lovely hat. I don't know what you think about it (you can write down in the comments) but I love the final effect.

Below video from this event
