I am making another hat. It will be for me. The kids both have oodles of hats and mittens but not me. My wardrobe needs a little lift. Well, honestly, it could use a huge lift, but this hat will help me on the way to being warm.
I found three skeins of this wonderful fine wool at a flea market last spring. I am making up the pattern as I go. It is going to have a folded ribbing for extra warmth. Black seems like a good color, so simple and it goes with everythng.
I do like black and white. This black and white decorative lassie has found a spot in my shop today. As you can see my embroidery needle was busy decorating her with multiple flowers with copious knots.
I had to see how she would look with a splash of color around her. I like the contrast. I named Fru Ulsrud after a place in Oslo. I have been enjoying naming my creations after areas of my city lately.
