I have made somewhere around a thousand hats....no kidding! And I own very few myself. I love hats. I love how they look and how they keep you warm. What I don't love about hats is how they feel on my head. All of the hats I own are loose fitting and soft because if they were not, they would irritate me to distraction. So, the other day while I was fondling the stash (come on you've done it), I picked up a skein of Belfast Mini Mills, Merino/Cashmere 3 ply and thought....I need a snowshoeing hat....made out of this!
It is so incredibly soft, squishy and smooshy. It feels like a heavenly cloud on my head and doesn't irritate me in the least. Ok, so now I have snow covered fields and a perfect snowshoe hat....I'm thinking it's time for an adventure.
