The Auction Hat

I have made a hat that, if it doesn't sell on Etsy if I ever create a sellers page, I will be putting up for the silent auction for the Hockey fundraiser. It is made of the angora Noro blend, the warmest of this hat design.

Yea, I am a hockey Mom on top of everything else. I will also be auctioning a custom made one to go along side.

More information to soon follow about the custom made hats.

My Noro Hat and the first I sold!

My hat is the one on the right. The hat on the left is a "duplicate" of my hat, and the first hat I sold. I love how these are both the same angora blend and dye lot Noro hats, but each is unique - truly a surprise every time.

I love making them. I am currently making a 100%wool Noro Kochoran, like Daughters hat but in hue's of blue and green, for Daughter's Godmother Mia.
Here is the yarn I started with

And here is my work thus far - oh I need a better camera than my iPhone!

Happy Easter!

Sunday Sandwich

Apparently, the shine has come off the apple. This is the 3rd one in a row with no picture. :(
