another hat

It's been another hectic weekend, Saturday was spent with the "oldies", dropping off my old piano and clarinet for my niece and nephew to "play" with when they visit the grandparents. I say "play" because at just 9 years old my nephew is already better on the piano than I ever was! This weekend saw the finale of the Imagine Festival in Watford so we had a wander into town to watch a couple of the street performances while we were there.

Yesterday evening, I finally found some time to get wet and woolly and started this hat, it is based on the same resist as last week's top hat but I added a little piggy tail. It's still drying, hence all the pins...

There's something about it that reminds me of Guinan from Star Trek...

I think it's the upturned flattened brim?

I also found time today to make a journal cover from some of the lovely silks I purchased from Carol's stand at Woolfest. I'm afraid I forgot to take a photo before I started felting but here is an off-cut to give an idea of what the pattern was like before.

The green wool rather engulfed the finer detail of the pattern while I was fulling it, but I still rather like the final effect:




  1. I do love your hats Teri! They are so elegant!

  2. Great hat - I like this design better than the top hat one. Perhaps because it is more asymmetrical? The notebook cover is great too.

    1. Thanks Ruth, I agree there is something jaunty about a lop-sided hat.
