These hats are now washed and blocked and ready to give as a gift. They are soft and squishy, however, because this yarn (see 2 blogs down), even tho it is 100% acrylic, will require a little bit of special care. It can be washed in the washing machine on gentle and cold water but, it can’t go in the dryer, it must be laid flat to dry, and they took a full day and night to dry (maybe because of the weather or because they are so thick), would be less time I’m sure if you put a fan on it during the day. That might be a problem for people who aren’t familiar with knitwear care. So I will reserve this yarn for family and friends who are knit worthy :P. The friend, who these were made for, is knit worthy, but because she is a busy nurse I hope this won’t be a pain for her. Her babies will be warm tho :).
Now to work on a hat for my daughter out of some hand spun alpaca.
