A Disappointing Project
I'm one round shy of finishing a hat I've been working on "forever". I'll finish it this afternoon....but I HATE it! I love cotton brimmed hats for the spring and summer months...they're colorful and serve a purpose. So...I tried using a skein of yarn I had in my "stash"--Paton's COTTON TOP. It's ply is uneven and it's full of "lumps and bumps"--they way it should be. But, it's just not suitable...it stretches...I mean REALLY stretches...and the stitches look uneven. If I sold that in my eBay store, I'm sure they consumer would be just plain pissed off. Know what I mean?? So, I'll give the hat to one of the thrift stores and move on.
