I'd forgotten how much our silly dog, Max, hates men in hats.
I've been working on a new hat design & finished it this morning. I stuck the hat on Mr. Poser and proceeded to set Mr. Poser on the craft table. Now, each time Max walks into the room, he starts growling & snarling.
The hat does need a name. Maybe I should call it the "Max." No, probably not. But it deserves a better name than "kooky hat" which is what my husband keeps calling it. He's not overly risky when it comes to fashion. Anything beyond kaki pants or jeans with either a blue, white or flannel shirt (in tones of blue or brown) is "kooky" in his book. A bright red hat with ear flaps definitely falls into his idea of kooky attire. If you've got any suggestions, feel free to send them my way.
Last night, I finished a pair of cabled fingerless gloves that I made for myself.
I am going to LOVE these this winter! The yarn is pure Alpaca & comes from a local farm. Actually, the yarn comes from Sampson, one of Alpaca Pastures of VA's herdsires. I'm pretty excited because I'll be meeting Sampson in a few weeks when our homeschool group takes a tour of the farm. I bought this yarn when I met Sherry at a fall festival we were both participating in. It's incredibly soft and I sure hope she has more available. I've been kicking myself ever since for not also buying a few skeins of gray. Frankly, I think I should own it all!
Don't forget - if you've got a hat name idea, let me know!
