Anyway, I set off knitting a little hat. And then I just barely ran short of wool. I was missing all of 5-6 feet of wool to finish off the crown to my little cap. Judy to the rescue! She had a second skein of wool sent to me over Christmas to finish off this little project. It took the past five months to get myself together and finish this project. I packed it up and brought it on the flight with me from Dublin to Copenhagen this week. There was no way I was returning to Ireland with this hat unfinished.
Want to finally see the finished hat? Ta-Da:
It's quite hard to find a place to photograph a brown hat. I first tried the picnic table as at times the weathered grey and lichen look nice with darker colored stuff. Not so much today.
Now, as many of you know, brown is not at all my favorite color when it comes to fabric. This brown, however, is just a beautiful chocolate brown that matches my brown leather gloves perfectly and compliments my orange winter coat like they were made for one another. I even have a little brown and orange striped scarf to tie the look together. Love it.
And off to a traditional-looking West of Ireland rock with green little moss. The only thing not traditional here is the ray of sunshine. Where did that come from?
And finally here in the grass. This had to be a fast shot...before Molly the pup became interested!
Anyway, there's my finished cap. Another finish for the Q2 finish along, making it my third this quarter. It fits my head so perfectly, covers my ears to keep them warm and isn't so tight it messes up my hair. Judy, thank you. I love it.
