New Hat for Hayley









Seems like knitting Hayley a hat every winter has become a tradition. Last year there was 2, the sock monkey hat which fit a bit tight and the green toque both which I never got a picture of. The year before was another green hat which was too large and the year before was my first knitting project, the ear flap hat. Now that Hayl's a bit older I don't think she wants to wear the earflap style because it would probably make her look like a 16 year old. She appeared happy with the new one. I loved the colour and the yarn. The yarn Is Mirasol Miski Baby Alpaca. It's the softest yarn I've ever touched. Of course I loved it so much that I'm now making a scarf for her to go with it.
Last weekend we headed west to Toronto so that we could have a quick visit with Hayley. I needed one to tide me over until she comes home at Christmas. It was a good day. We went to Creme de la Creme for a nice breakfast lunch. We did a bit of shopping but it doesn't take Hayley and I long to get shopped out.
also gave her the gathered pullover I made her. It fit alright except the lenght was a little short. I may make this one again for someone else. I'd like to see it in a prettier colour than brown. Whatever it seemed to bring out the Ninja characteristics in Hayley.

I can take pictures of the other two hats and send them to you if you want. I love the green hat. It was always my favorite. Now I'm not sure which one is my favorite since you made my burgundy slouchy hat. It's so warm!

Hi,
I came across your blog from the Warm Ewe Up group on Ravelry. I just read a bit and found we have a few things in common.

I'm also from Toronto, although I now live in LA.

My mother also passed away from breast cancer at age 49. So I make sure to get mammograms regularly.

I've also been married a little over 30 years... we have one son, all grown up and married and moved away.

I am also reading the Friday Night Knitting Club...
That's quite a few concidences!

Anyway just thought I'd say Hi, and I will drop in on your blog from time to time.

Cheers,
Brenda (goodstuff on Ravelry)
