Emma and I have been busy.
Recently I visited an old friend in this post and decided it was time for me to do more totally improv hats again. I am very interested in using up bits of stash yarn , perfecting these hats ! My brother is wild about these and well, his birthday is in April. But this little hat for little I decided yesterday afternoon to make for a present, as the one for who it is made is two months old and I’m attending a party for her tomorrow. This wee hat is first in a series of “Sherpa Neuveau” hats I will knit up lots in the foreseen future… my brother’s to be next.
Here it is, inside out.
I’m very satisfied with my improvising, though the crocheted edge is done badly (I don’t crochet, I improv’d that too, I was trying to tame the curling ear flaps !
It’s quite a cute little hat, perfect for a 2month baby-sized head. The colors don’t seem as vivid in the photographs as they are in person ( I need to get the hang of lighting in photography). The light purple and green backgrounds are alpaca , with little filled in color from various wool and wool blends I have hanging around. Adorable I might say myself.
