Hazy, fibery summer days

The temperature and the humidity have been uncooperative in southern New England for the past week or so. It’s hard to decide what you want to do next when it’s visibly humid so I decided to bounce around between projects. I learned a new, to me, cast on for top down hats and it came in very handy for an order I have for a dozen hats to be decorated at the local library.

  1. Love Berroco yarns!

    • I haven’t met one that I didn’t like yet!


    • And the concentrating is at the beginning. LOL. I hope it works for you Lea.
