My Crush hat

November 5, 2008 , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I finished the crush hat for Erika. This pattern was chosen from the Luxury Yarn one-skein wonders : Ailish’s Alpaca-Merino Crush Hat. Originally, the designer added a visor for this hat (then, it will look like a cap), but I found that Erika looks good without it, so, I omitted that part. 

I didn’t block the hat yet, I am thinking: do I have to do it? I actually love the curled up bottom of the hat. 🙂

When I firstly put it on Erika’s hat, she refused it, I was afraid that she didn’t like the feeling of wearing hat. But then I told her,’you look pretty with this orange hat!’ . She smiled and didn’t take it away ! 🙂 

So sweet!


She was very excited when I said that she looked pretty with the hat.

That’s why I could able to take some ‘happy’ pictures of her with the hat. 🙂

However, the pictures were taken last night, and it looks yellowish without natural light source. (ANd I don’t like using flash…sorry.) 

so, I will probably retake some better pictures in later days.

The yarn is not very very soft, but still acceptable. 

I still have some yarn left, and dont’ know what to do with it. 

I am now knitting another cap – Norwegian sweet baby cap.

The yarn that I chose for this cap is the incredibly soft yarn by  Misti International Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Suri Silk. And the color is extremely beautiful. 

Will take picture of it when I have time .. 🙂
