The Cat Hat, FO from First S&B Book


Here it is, the cat hat in hot pink Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton from the generous and driven keohinani of Aloha and Oreos modeled by the ancient and weathered Daruma doll of my childhood. The hat disquises the fact that he has a concussion and the wish associated with this doll is long forgotten.



In the last hurrah of Project Sprectrum Yellow/Orange month I found this yellow "rose" on my neigborhood walk. I don't think it is rose as it has a milky sap.

Hi Barb!
I love the cat hat! It's so cute on your daruma. I finished the shroom last Friday and was going to send it out to you on Saturday, and crash! My computer died - sniff. I still don't have it up and running despite over 10 hours on the phone with Dell. I just a received a part that I'm supposed to change myself - good grief! I'm using another computer right now so I was able to get your snail mail addy - finally! I'm so sorry this took so long. Hopefully, I'll have it in the mail tomorrow!

Oh wow, the Cat Hat is so cute! Very cute in this pink and even beter knowing it's made from Blue Skys Cotton yarn. That's what I am knitting with right now. I bet someone will post on here exactly what that pretty yellow flower is. Maybe it's a Hawaiian Rose of some sorts.

Cute cat hat! I have to know though, what's a daruma? It sounds like a nifty idea though if I'm catching the gist of it...

Love the hat! I see that your daruma has both eyes colored in. I got in trouble when I was little for coloring them all in.

Gorgeous flower too, it almost looks like a yellow gardenia.

I like the hat, and I learned something, too! I had not heard of daruma dolls before. What a cool custom.
