First Hat off the Fine Sett Gauge peg loom

My peg loom ordered from Decor Accents as a Valentine gift arrived (at LO-ONG last) just this past Monday. Definitely not in time for doing something for the Relief Sale, still, okay at the beginning of the week for Spring Break.

Husband says
I should do something “just for me” during time off
Go listen to some music, check out an art exhibit he says

Well, I did go to hear the speaker mentioned in the last post, and I did clear and carry out all the recycle items from all the corners of the kitchen… both events leaving me feeling much refreshed and less crowded.

No, I don’t want to go out, exactly.

What I want to do is make another hat on my new loom.

Didn’t the first one turn out adorable?

made of TLC Baby (3-ply) acrylic yarn color Giggles

I have no idea exactly how long it took to knit this
but I think the finished item is worth my fun

the doll was purchased for $1 at a yard sale awhile back
it is supposed to be the same size as an average newborn
the gown is from a different sale for a quarter

She was with me as the model for the new hat when I went to my Yarn Group. The window sill is at the Township Activity Center, so beyond the glass is not my responsibility for clean-up. There are maintenance employees who will take on the task.

I’ll put the hat in the bag going for babies at the hospital.
~~love and Huggs, Diane

    That is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL hat.

    I love the colors and it is so well made. That is obvious from the picture.

    Great job.

    Your husband has a point. I just saw a gorgeous exhibit of Japanese cloisonne done in the 40’s. It did what it was intended to do by the exhibitors….lift me up. It was memorable. Wish I could go again, but it’s in Baltimore, and that is quite an effort. It’s fun to stretch the boundaries a bit.

    But I can understand the pull of that loom too. To feel like you accomplished something (and you actually did it!) is very very valuable.

    Always appreciate your notes,
    love you a bunch,
    sis

    Your model is a very sweet looking one. It certainly shows off your handiwork well. The hat is adorable with colors that suit either boy or girl. I’d say this was a Valentine present that will get lots of use and give you great satisfaction in the years to come.

    A new hat for a baby, a new ‘toy’ for you – looks like a “win/win” situation to me! Love the colors, very nice!

    Great hat especially for its intended recipient. That’s a right charitable thing you do.
