before ninotchka there were flappers ....
before i started working on the strange looking 1940s style hat i set my sights on a crochet cloche. it did not work out the way i wnated, but it is not the fault of the pattern. i chose the completely wrong yarn for this project. wrong colour, wrong
texture. i thought a smooth surfaced merino was the way to go but it
needs the opposite, a heathered neutral with a slight halo. i will give
it another go in ultra alpaca, but i had to put it down for a rest. i also kind of screwed up the ridges on the front, which i think i prefer pronounced.
anyway, i'm not crazy about it, so i'm donationg it to the Shop For The Cause Haiti Fundraiser, this Saturday.
