I have started this hat, Ruby Red Heart by Kristin Ashbaugh on Ravelry, using more of my Limerick stash by Universal Yarns. I had 10 balls? I think I am down to 7 now. It is a tad scratchy but I don’t know any wool that isn’t. I figure ones mixed with alpaca or something else are softer.
…and I got a shelf for my table! It’s cleaning up, slowly but surely. I had bags of fabric all over the kitchen counter and now it has a tidy home on the craft table. It may not look amazing in the photo, but trust me! It’s a major improvement.
The hat is done and I had a model on hand. It didn’t take her long to find the bow and I had to quickly take it because the hat is actually a gift. I needed to make sure it fit!
