Handmade Paying It Forward (Part .5)


I finished a hat for Alena today. I have to share it because I am dang proud of this thing. I am going to make a hat with the same colors for Talyn next. Won't the lavender look lovely against Alena's skin? I hope it fits her when I get to see it on her.
The yarn is SO soft (55% Merino wool, 33% Microfire, and 12% Cashmere.) Its machine washable, but not dryable. It was a pleasure to make. I also got a new set of needles (Addi Turbos, instead of the Bamboo set, in a different size of course, so that might have had something to do with it too.)
I could tell you what I did if you want to try to make one yourself, leave a comment and I tell you the numbers.
