Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Toque

So yesterday I posted a poem that I wrote in payment for a toque hand-knit by Ash Dunsford. Thirteen pictures of the toque, made with baby alpaca wool, are below.  The poem, which can be found by clicking on its title, is called Long Dark Strands of Cedar and it’s made with words.

And now, Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Toque

A Toque From Above.

    Toquen aback is my personal fav. Oh, and fool of a Toque. :D

    It’s a very nice toque. I like it. If I were there you’d have to check my bag when saying goodbye, to make sure I hadn’t toque it with me.
