|Angie's latest hat that I made|
I thought that while I am having my morning coffee...no, not fresh perked...just a cup of hot water with instant Folgers and Amaretta creamer that I would share how the latest hat is coming along.
You all know that I love to knit and felt hats. I have 9 hats in hat boxes for myself and I have made my girls a few hats,,,now if they wear them...that's another story. I know Ang has worn hers because she tells me that ladies come up to her in stores and tells her that her hat is pretty. I have worn the one in the picture above a few times and worn the matching shawl with it...mainly to church.
I showed you my latest hat that I knitted hanging over a paper towel roll, it was very large before I started the felting process.
Here is what I have so far...not trimmed or delinted yet. It is very heavy and will be very warm this winter.
Now I need to decide how I will finish it. I really like Carrie's hats that she makes but I will not copy her beautiful hats...I doubt if I could even if I tried and besides, it would not be my design and no longer my hat. I love her work. If you get a chance please go to her blog...and I am often getting emails asking if I would make someone a hat but my time is so limited while I am working and the farm work keeps me busy. Knitting and felting and decorating a hat can take a week of every spare minute for me. Carrie sells her hats and has a wide variety to chose from...I have started recommending Carrie's hats to those asking me for a hat.
Go see her many hats at http://ccmhats.com/
this is just a sample of her work...love them.
|I found some wool yarn in my stash...no not home spun...that I will knit into another hat ...just for the kicks and grins.|
|I just love this book and dvd. I listen to it while I am carding wool and cooking. |
Stay cool today...predictions of 100 degrees here.
God bless be with you in your comings and goings today.
|I love this hat, I have no idea who made it but I just love it.|
