December 21st, 2011 and a hat
This morning I was told it was "santa hat day" at school and asked to whip something up. I didn't have any red or white around that would do the trick. Only an old black sweater someone had felted by accident and handed over to me. I had just read the other day about machine couching and so I grabbed some red wool roving and added that. Senor insisted it needed a pom-pom so I made two.
The scarf is his Solstice gift. I cut into some beautiful wool and cotton blend plaid from Liberty of London that had been gifted to me from a vintage stash. Papa got one and I made myself a shawl. Now we all match! I am so happy to have found something so everyday useful for this beautiful fabric.
After getting ready for school we had to drop by a neighbors house and give her a Christmas card.
Happy Solstice everyone!!
