Fall is here!
Hope you’re all doing fine, and had a good summer!
The summer breezed by me so fast, it ended too soon. And somewhere in between, none of the hats I was working on would work out … it was too big, it was too small, it had a weird shape, it wouldn’t take shape …
A friend said that it was still too hot to make hats, so maybe I should wait until the weather got cooler.
Well, it’s 20 degrees cooler here now … maybe the hats will take shape when I work on them?
Here’s what I managed to finish so far. I wanted to try out Lion Brand’s new yarn, Unique. That’s the two blue hats in front – the big one on the right, and the smaller one in the middle. Then there’s the red-fuschia-orange-brown behind them. I love variegated yarn … it makes for interesting colour patterns without the hustle of colour changes, when you don’t have time for that. The pattern is a simple single crochet all around, or half double crochet around. On the other hats, I started off with the ribbed pattern for the NYCHHI Hat, then finished off the body with the crochet seed stitch for a bit of texture.
I’m also finally getting a chance to open up the packages received over the summer. If you’ve sent something in, apologies that it’s taking so long to acknowledge and post photos of your items. It’s been such a hectic summer, but I promise that I will be posting them.
Thanks for all your help and support of this cause!
