Hello fellow bloggers. Today I finished this hat that a friend asked me to make for her. Well, not for her but for a baby of a friend of hers. It was a delight to make, very fast and easy. The yarn I used was called Amerino, a combination of Cotton and Acrylic. The color does not show exact but is a neutral beige in color with some specks of pure white. I'm not sure you can see that, but it's there.
Plain I felt I needed to add something. Originally I knit it with the fun fur fringe in the brim, but it turned out with most of the fur appearing on the inside of the brim and I didn't like it so had to tear it all out. Instead I knitted a flower and added a vintage pearl button to secure it and make the flower more noticeable.
I tried several color flowers but none of them seemed to do the hat justice. I went with the same yarn used in the body of the hat.
Now, to see if I can make some little shoes as an ensemble. I never did them so don't know how long it will take me to find the pattern and actually get them done. Best be getting busy.
I am enjoying viewing what you are all up to so don't stop.
