When is a hat not just a hat?

20130610-080115.jpg
When you…
..gathered the wool of of fences, trees, and farmlands while walking England’s southwest coastal path.
…and then snuck said wool through customs.
…and washed it, carded it, stared at it trying to figure out what to make.
…but then you spin it to an Aran weight and make a hat for hubs for his birthday.

Now THAT is not just a hat. It might be my fav FO ever.

Spin on!

  1. You’ve walked the ground that grew the grass that fed the sheep that grew the wool that got caught on fences that you collected! Has to be one of the best souvenirs ever.
