My first hat is finished for 2017. It will be a part of the Womens’ March on The National Mall of 1/21. It will be donated and given to warm a marcher and to show solidarity for womens’rights. I know some of you expressed that you don’t like the name of the pattern. I appreciate your honesty . I do. I wanted to be a small part of the March. My friend Anne is going and she will choose/find a recipient for my knit hat.
I used leftover Zara for the ribbing. I found some Shi Bui sockyarn in nearly the same color for the stockinette portion. So I doubled the yarn and the gauge matched up to the zara weight. (almost. ) It was really really close. Hey, it worked. By the way, the red is really more fuschia in real life. I dont’ know why reds misbehave so in photos. Way to go Kathy b, using up leftover stash!
I had a surprise when I awoke this morning. I had a silicone ear plug stuck to my hair. My first try at earplugs: epic fail. Im trying to grow out my hair, not chop it into pieces. I don’t really NEED the earplugs. I’ve just been awakened this week by the neighbor’s dog Harley misbehaving. It is just such perfect sleep in weather….cold, windy, snowy, slush…January! Harley’s waking me up.
Harley does not usually cause a ruckus. I think he’s just stir crazy. He’s wearing the cone of shame to, I notice with binoculars….I’m one of those country neighbors!
Thank you Fireman for carefully combing the silicone out of my hair while you had your coffee this morning. We didnt’ have to cut it! If we did I’ may have had to keep that new hat….and I would much rather it be donated to a Marcher!
