The hat didn’t quite turn out the way I’d thought, but for a first time – I guess it’s ok. Everyone loves it – on someone else. Not sure where this one is going to end up. It is quite warm though! Maybe I will rip a few rows out … it was looking like a great hot pad for S.S’s paella pan, (“Sweet Sister”, as I call her. If you change the one of the letters in my blog title to a “B” – that’s what she calls me, LOL) We’ll just have to wait and see I guess. Like I said, it is really very warm. I might just keep it for myself.
The shrug, I love. I couldn’t find the “fashion ring” called for in the pattern, so I bought a whole bag of “findings” I think it said – and used a keychain ring in it’s place. It was smaller than called for, but it worked.
