I asked my best friend if she wanted me to make a pussy hat for her out of yarn that I was spinning. Her first thought was, no. That is because she crochets as well. I got her hooked. Pun intended. But then she said, yes! Elizabeyta made yarn and hat. She thought such love.
She actually sent me a pattern that she liked better then the original published pattern. I had to agree. It just seemed to be cuter. The ears worked better. As I was making it, I realized that I had made similar hats years ago. Twelve to be exact but in bulkier yarn. With huge pompons. I made one for her as well. She says that every time she wears it everyone has to wear it.
I think if and when I make a similar hat for myself I am going for the bigger pompoms. And I do not do pink. I may go with the brown yarn I am making with accents. The March for Science will be a bit hot with this type of hat on my head in April. But maybe I will figure something out. And I will use my old pattern. I think it turned out better.
The yarn I made was very soft. And my best friend's head is not very large. The pattern was a bit large for her. The yarn was not very elastic. But she loved it when delivered. The tassels helped. She also recieved this hat when she was recovering from the norovirus. Everything combined to help make it just the right hat for her.
The curves on the road this week are getting even more interesing. Koda Bear is not being needy or clingy but I have about 15 minutes to myself before he wishes to be near. It makes it hard to accomplish anything. I understand but it does make it hard. I worked on my shop during the making of dinner because that was the time I had. Hustle when you can. Any way you can. But there is fresh bread for his belly and lots of cuddles. It is what it is.
And sometimes his favorite thing is to help me spin or sew. More yarn for hats. More quilting done. It all works.
