I am excited to share this hat with you! It is so luxe. I wish you could feel it.
Let me start at the beginning.
I have a friend who is doing an incredible favor for me, so I wanted to make her a little something to show my gratitude. I found this hat pattern and thought it would be the perfect present. After a trip to the yarn store, I came home with this gorgeous chunky alpaca yarn.
It’s Alpaca. It’s chunky. It’s white. So pretty much, it’s perfect.
It took me about a day to actually knit this hat.
And then a few more weeks to buy the buttons, and then a bit more time to actually sew them on. But I persevered! The final product was completely worth it.
The drape is just wonderful. Most of the ladies at my knitting group are planning on making this too. It would be a great present, you know, for any major holidays that might be coming up.
Have you been busy creating anything lovely lately? Please share!
P.S. Inspired by this article and in honor of 9/11, I plan on knitting some preemie hats on Sunday. Please join me! I will blog about it on Monday, and you all can add your comments and links to the conversation. See you then.
