Happy Monday Everyone!
This hat story is so funny!
Here it is the beginning of June ~ Summer is almost here... It is almost 90 degrees outside as I type this, and I just crocheted this FUN 100% Chunky Wool Bobble Hat!
Sometimes I crack myself up!
I know Archie is laughing at me! ;)
I could not help myself!
I just found the most wonderful Universal wool yarn for 1/2 price at Tuesday Morning in my favorite mustard color.
So...I had to make this hat!
I loved making it, and I found a whole new yarn company in NC ~ Universal ~ to enjoy!
I googled their website and immediately fell in love with all the colors and textures of yarn that they offer.
After working with this great fiber, I will definitely be ordering more!
Another great tidbit of this story that makes me smile is that as soon as I finished the last stitch of the hat, I decided it needed a special embellishment for the top.
I put down my crochet hook and went to the mailbox to get the mail and a package from the UK was waiting for me.
My friend Lynne, in the UK, first shared the unique snowflake yarn with me earlier this year when we made our sea urchins and when I used it in my owl pillow, I asked her how I could order more.
She showed me where she gets it and I was tickled pink to see that they sell to the US and that they convert straight to $ from pounds with the push of a button on their website.
The shipping was less than I pay for some mail within the USA and it came in less than a week!
I was so happy that I made a bobble right there in the kitchen with the new blue skein and my hat was complete!
How FUN is that?
What FUN things are you up to today?
Did something you saw on your walk with your doggies make you smile, or something you made in the kitchen turn out especially yummy? ;)
Please leave us a note and tell us all about your smile today!
We cannot wait to hear all about it!
