the swap.





here it was. jill nad i were at the common ground fair back in september. we decided we would pick up a few skeins of yarn and make eachother a cozy hat before it got too cold. mine (the one jill made for me) was aptly titled the 'autumn leaves hat, with secret heart' (because it had a secret heart sewn into the back)and the one i made jill...well..as you can see it befell a much different name. an apology. i just put hers in the mail on monday a full 3 months i've been wearing MY cozy hat!
also- one really neat thing about our hats are that while jill's is a peachy orange and mine is a pinky red the accent color is from the same skien of yarn. and it is this terrific bulky weight yarn with all of these great variations and slight flaws and a bit of glitter running through it!
well - at least i finished it in time for three snowstorms in one week! hope your cozy jill!

I like the idea of the secret heart in the hat your friend made for you.

Your note and packaging on the hat you made is very fun. Love the yarn...and the hat looks so soft and comfy.

Better late than never! Such a pretty color, it will warm her heart. Also, the parcel itself will no doubt make her smile.
