A flash from the past..Moda Dea Cache...um, not sorry it's discontinued, but it served to try out a new pattern....
A felted hat pattern from the Cascade Yarn Co.
It was huge before I felted it...reached from the top of my head down to my shoulders.
Three rounds in the washing machine it came out just right, didn't help with the colors, but the pattern works well. The brim can be worn up...
or down....I've another on the needles now, can't wait to see how it turns out using worsted wool in purple.
Here in the jar are the makin's for pineapple vinegar. The scrap skin and core from a fresh pineapple will make vinegar good for using in salads and other recipes.
I found the tutorial over at down---to---earth. A really interesting blog by Rhonda with tips on earth friendly/frugal living. Go visit, you'll love her website. (The chirps don't knit, but they're always interested in what's going on in the kitchen.)
Have a great, warm week, Y'all!
