My sister and I took an overdue trip to our favorite yarn store, Only Ewe and Cotton Too. After finding a good set of Addi Turbo’s long enough to hold the five hundred stitches of my ruffled scarf, (It was a job transferring the stitches.)
I found something else to hold my attention. On the cover of a pattern book, I saw a vintage late twenties ‘flapper’ hat pattern.
I just love the styles of the twenties and early thirties, and now I now have a project lined up that I’m far more excited about than I was those scarves. It’s so adorable! I’m going to add a little brooch I found to the brim. Just to make it my own. It was made from an early thirties mold, and I think it’s lovely. In came in a package of three, but I don’t know what I’ll do with the other two. I found some yarn, as well. It’s just a neutral, brown, but the texture gives it some interest. I think it suits the pattern to a T.
I already have the needles, so I’m set. I think the only needles I don’t have are size two, and zero double pointed needle’s. I snapped all my zero’s. I’m a terror on my smaller dpn’s. I have bought at least two sets of size zero’s through the years, and I don’t have a single one left. My size two’s are just missing. I’ll probably find them in a couple of years under a couch in the basement, or in a random vase.
