Ok so it might be helpful so actually put something in the body of this blog posting right? That's what happens when you get side tracked trying to do 5 things at a time. Us girls pride ourselves on the simple fact that we can multitask very well. It is something that is just ingrained into our DNA and sadly enough it is not so for most of our male counterparts. It is something that just comes very naturally to us, or at least most of the women in my life including myself. I was busy posting the hat on Etsy so that someone would want to buy it possibly and totally forgot to finish my blog post about it over here.
When it comes to Lion Brand Homespun Yarn, you know that I am a lifetime lover and user! If they ever went out of business (which I highly doubt they ever COULD) I would be the saddest woman in the entire world for at least a month. I won't know what to do with myself. When we go to the yarn store, I make sure that I set a budget so I can make sure and get at least one new color of this brand of yarn. They never cease to amaze me with the brilliance of the colors when the hats are finished. This yarn is the most beautiful candy apple red color and the softest texture you have ever felt. I say this in every post about it because in case you are a new reader and haven't heard my previous rants about this wonderful product..... THIS YARN ROCKS!!!! Whether it's a hat, a pair of gloves, a new scarf, a sweater, a cellphone pouch, you name it, this yarn can make it the softest thing you have ever felt. It's like they somehow were able to take the softness of rabbits fur, blend it with silk and string it together into amazingly colored yarns. If I could afford to buy stock in this I would! I have alone spent $1000 on this brand of yarn to make hats, gloves, pouches and even an afghan for my bed.
So to get back to this awesome hat. My mother loves the color red. I have seen a ton of postings on Yardseller.com which is a new site I'm trying out asking for RED slouchy beanies. REAL DEEP RED, not Coral or Salmon colored. RED. So since I had that color at home, and was already making a ton of hats while my camera wasn't working, I decided to add that color to the mix. It turned out way better than I had planned. I really hope this is as much of a hit as I think it will be. There are a lot of people who just want an elegant Red hat that they can wear on any occasion. This is that hat!
Thanks for looking y'all. I really appreciate your support!
