Has spring finally sprung for all of you? When I lived in DC, I loved the cherry blossoms, but oh, my allergies would emerge like the Loch Ness Monster and I’d suffer for months on end. Here in Beijing it’s not so bad, but they have this amazing fluffy stuff that flies from all the trees. Urban legend has it that they planted all these pretty trees but then they turned out to be all ‘female’ and released pollen and there were no ‘male’ trees to help the pollen out. I have no idea what that means, but the “spring snow” is worth a look just so you can giggle at the non-foresight of the Beijing urban planners. It gets stuck in my husband’s beard and he shows up at work looking like Santa Claus.
This hat is a classic that I’ve had rolling around for years. Case in point – my lovely little model below is now something along the lines of 5 years old, with 2-year old twin brothers. Where does the time go?!
Every yarn lover has to, at some point, pay homage to the source and respect the humble little lamb whose glorious woolly coats make our hobby possible. I love this hat because it works up super fast with the puff stitches. I’ve also made it in boucle yarn for some fluffy texture and it’s equally fun. Celebrate the onslaught of spring with your own fuzzy sheepy hat!
