I've had this fiber around for some time and finally made a hat with it. It turned out great. The dark color is merino in a very dark violet, while the surface of the hat is merino tencel. The combination is yummy, IMO.
This is #3 in my quest to get 200 hats done by the first of December. I know I'll not make it, but I am giving it my all. I think I have about 30 hats done as of right now, but do have several shows ahead of me. I wonder if at the end of all of this I'll be sick of hats? I cannot imagine it though. I also wonder if anyone expects me to clean the house while I am on the quest of 200 hats? Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!
