Hats, glorious hats

I have finished a couple of hats, both of which I have been meaning to get round to for ages. I love slouchy hats and lost my favourite one last year.  So before the weather gets any colder I wanted to make another one.  I already had the perfect yarn.  It is the beautiful pale […]
