I've finished two more hats and have one more to go before I have a half dozen to mail to the Brewery Arts Center. I want to get them there and available while the weather is still cold. I'm motivated to finish these small projects because they pay from things like my guitar, which by the way, broke it's G-string in the middle of the night, two days after I bought it brand new. I'm going to get a new string today. Since it hangs in our bedroom, it was a rather bizarre sound in the deep of the night.
This skein come from one of the bumps I bought from Mim last year. It's Blue-Faced Leicester and lovely. I had posted a picture of it when I bought it but I'm having a hard time finding things in the Vista My Pictures so can only show this. It's already underway as my final hat. I had dyed some raspberry last week in my dye frenzy and it matches perfectly, though the hat a little candy colored for my taste.
Son Josh asked me last year for a hat to wear hunting so I made this one from our four Shetlands. I don't think you can't tell, but the white is double-coated and has a wonderful halo effect. We were at their house yesterday for Grandson Logan's 8th birthday party. I asked him to bring it out so I could take a picture which will probably soon be lost in my Vista My Pictures. I'm thinking about downloading Gimp, a free picture editor.
Holed up but not complaining
