My new hat and the Girls.....made with all the colours here at Zanzibah !!
So what to do on a miserable damp day....knit another hat...I have been promising myself a new hat for ages..I usually wear a man-made...one....how dare I ..I hear you say..!!! so today this has been rectified.
I collected up all may spare bits and pieces of wool, I had from left over knitting...well if you didn't guess by now..I pride my self..on my 'Fine 'n' Fancy multi coloured herd...that is what we are all about here in Zanzibah Land !!
So I had to have a hat to fit the bill......obviously multi coloured...with all my alpacas in it with me, to wear with pride....as you do !! we all have a favourite hat...I dare you not to.
So this is the result and apparently there is some 'cool chick' modelling it.....well that is said by Barbara at Beckbrow.....not me ! If I was to label myself...something..more like..an 'ageing old hen'...springs to mind...but I shall let you decide on that one !!
Oh..and to round off the new look....I managed to find myself some new wellies....now some regular readers will recall....my old ones I was hanging onto...through-out last winter..I even tried to repair them.....mind you I had them over 7 years, so I can't complain...I will have to throw them out...now, yes I still have them in the welly box.....!!
As I have taken delivery of my new ones...today....we had a little test wear..round the house and in the garden before the big initiation ceremony...into the depths of mud !!! outside !!
So I thought that you might also like to see them......OH !! ..lovely I hear you cry !!
Well...I like them...and its only taken me...about....10 months..to find the right ones....
I shall go out tonight.....looking swell in my new hat and wellies.....no doubt I shall be stared at by the locals.....and the alpacas....
But ..well we don't mind setting the fashion trend up here !!!
