I don't know why I sometimes get so excited about a work-in-progress, really love the finished item, but then don't have the courage to wear it.
It's with some delight that I've just set the Ravelry status for my grey fluffy peaked hat to 'Finshed' and put a big smiley face beside it. Yes, it has joined the very select group 'FPs that I'm really pleased with'. It's taken less than two weeks, including spinning the yarn (alpaca - blended natural white and natural black - see an earlier post).
My friend Jenni was kind enough to model it for me today. She generously said that it looked OK on me, but it certainly does look far better on her.
