Project 8: Heart Hat for Mirabel
And here's a fun hat.
I made this hat for Meet Me at Mikes' (or, as I prefer, Meet Meat, Mikes, as though two sheltered lads named Mike were being introduced to bacon. Mmmm... Bacon.) Hearts for Mirabel appeal.
I sent it earlier in the week by express post, but haven't heard that it was received, so I'll check with the post office on Monday. I never heard anything about the softies I sent last year, but I'm sure they're busy.
It's just one of my Spiraling hats (I'm trying to get the pattern up, hopefully this month!), except that I extended the top into a rather long icord and made a little heart on the end. I REALLY wish I'd written down how I did the heart before I sent it off, but I'll try to figure it out.
The hearts are being sold for $10 each next month, I'll mention it again when it happens.
Pattern: Spiraling Hat by me!
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Bulky in Lotus Pink
Needles: 10mm dpns
Made for: the Mirabel Foundation
