I finished madams other hat (ok, second of three – I’m on a hat binge) This one is this pattern. The wool is a synthetic fuzzy sort of oddity, $1 a ball that I couldn’t resist. She loves it because its super soft. It was hard to crochet, the fuzzies sort of obscured the stitch visibility. I’d love to try the pattern again in different wool.
The park was a spur of the moment bonus after groceries and a wet grey morning. the sun appeared for us as we came out of the store. It was too much of a gift to miss.
It was fresh and chilly but a wonderfully welcome and refreshing 20 minutes. Madam nailed her climbing and the wind made her pink cheeked and smiley. On the drive home we shared cadburys choc fingers and satsumas. And listened to the Wombles songs – what felt like 100 times – it’s a longish drive.
