Inspired by the hat worn by Oskar in the movie Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. His was blue. I used exactly one skein of colorway 47.I was never able to get a view of the the top of the hat. I have not blocked the hat yet. Note to self to go down a needle size or two to make a firmer fabric.

here. There is so many tools in Adobe Photoshop that I dont' really know how to use! I laminated them and made them into bookmarks. I'm glad some people still read real books.

Jane Austen issue of Interweave knits. I harvested the Malabrigo Rios, colorway Candombe, from another project as it just screamed to be a Mobcap. Ripley hat. The handspun alpaca was handyed by Upstream Alpaca on Etsy. my yarn was a bit thin on a size 10 needle and it's a little snug. Kitty Hat by fluffyhelen from Craftster. I modified to knit it in the round on size 6 and 10 needles. I used Cascade 128 which made for a nice soft hat. The flower was crochet from left over Madelinetosh Vintage.
