Felted Hat !







I thought I would change the topic for a moment, from the baby-sitting duties. My parents have been visiting us last week. It was my mam's..... Birthday... so I decided to surprise her with the 'Zeuninni' Shawl that I had knitted. At the time my mam thought that I was making it for myself..... I had to pretend that I was because I wanted it to be a surprise, however I wanted to know which one she preferred, as I had made two !....thankfully she picked the one I thought she would, she actually has a crochet hat with the same blend of alpaca wool, so it should all match.

Before the babies arrived, I decided that I was going to have a go at making a felted hat !....so I had a little help from my parents. I got my felting book out and made a pattern......I showed my mam and dad how to felt ! ......

I said if it was ok, my mam could have it as an extra birthday present.... it took all day but I managed... I was quite proud of the finished article. So I thought I would show you as I managed to take a couple of photos of my mam wearing it just before they left us....although it was raining, I think it looks good... she actually suits it !...

Some people think that I'm a bit mad, but I like it and I would wear it !... honestly !!
