One day I got an email from Jennifer saying she just had a client, Heather, who might be contacting me about getting a hat made for her granddaughter. I LOVE referrals! Indeed, Heather got in touch with me, wanting a Santa hat, in dark red, for her granddaughter to wear with striped pajamas at a breakfast with Santa. No problem, I said, and got right to work.
I used up the very last of the white I had from the Frosty hat, and for the pompom, since it's not a very stable yarn when you cut it in small bits, I combined it with a plain white worsted. I like the effect. Then I started second-guessing the darkness of the red. It's darker than in this picture. Not quite "wine", but I wasn't sure...
I took both for Heather to pick one....and she picked both! I love what I do! AND, she requested two other hats!!
Both these two hats, and the next two, were done on the LK150.
