The latest off the hook

My husband and I have fallen in love with this hat. It quickly found a new home. But if a winter earflap hat could be called Divine, this one was. It was so soft and cozy! I made it out of 2 strands of the most luxurious yarn. Merino wool, alpaca and silk. And if providing warmth on a cold day isn't enough, even the yarn has a feel good story to it. A portion goes back the village to build schools for the Sheppard's children. How nice is that. I really hope the new owners loves it.

I am loving making these scarlets! They're so fun. I will confess one of my favorite things about them is picking out the buttons:)
