Riot of color in a snow-covered yard

Fiesta hats

As promised, I updated the shop this morning…

Fiesta hats

My toasty ears can attest to the coziness and warmth of these hats.  (And my frozen toes can attest to my dedication in photographing the hats in their natural, snow-covered environment.)

Fiesta hats

See how they brighten up a gloomy-looking day?  It’s that beautiful, vibrant, and soft wool from Uruguay that does it.  And the fancy-schmancy button doesn’t hurt.

Fiesta hats

I only made a small handful, and one of them is mine.  Mine, mine, mine.  If you’d like one too, you’d better hurry.

Keep warm, friends (and thank you)!

    1. My pleasure, it’s been such fun! I’m glad to be done, but I can’t help but wonder how I’m going to keep my hands busy tonight during Sci Fi Friday TV 😉

  11. Hello webmaster
    I would like to share with you a link to your site
    write me here

  12. Hello! I know you posted these several years ago, but I just bought the pattern and would love to know the names of the yarn colors if you know them still. I love the colors and want to see if I can find some of them.

    1. Hmmm, well, I know the green is Lettuce.
      I’m looking at the color chart now, and if I had to guess the other colors, I’d say they might be Shocking Pink, Green Spark, Amber Gold, Marrongon, Glazed Carrot, and Plata.
      I am not even sure you can get this yarn anymore, but I hope so. Good luck!

      1. Thank you, anything helps!
