Sunday Musings: A Finished Hat and Life

“Sunday is the golden clasp that binds together the volume of the week.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

Yesterday was a very relaxing day which allowed me me to concentrate on finishing up my crocheted hat.

So this handspun (shown below) that has been in my stash for a very long time turned into a lovely crocheted hat. The fiber was Anzula Luxury BFL Fiber in the color Forest.  When I bought my fiber, I bought three braids.  My first braid I decided to 2 ply but after learning how to chain ply, I decided that the other two braids would be finished in a chained ply (a.k.a Navajo Plied). I ended up with one skein at 166 yards and the other at 100 yards.

After seeing the Alder Cone pattern, I knew it would be perfect for this handspun and I am so happy with how it turned out. I am thinking about making a matching cowl or scarf using what was leftover along with my other braid if two ply.

Sundays to me are the best days of the week. It’s a day of resting, a day of preparation and a day spent entirely with the man I love.  We don’t do too much on Sundays.  Sometimes we go out to a favorite antique shop, but normally we just stay home and enjoy the day.  

This morning is starting off with me making biscuits for the week (hubby’s breakfast every morning) and a peach cobbler for desert tonight. For anyone interested, here’s the link to the peach cobbler recipe I am trying today. Pie made in a cast iron skillet and cooked on the grill is always awesome!

I hope to do a bit of spinning today and finish up what has been on my wheel for quite a while. And if time allows, I may even work on my sock.

What ever you do today, I hope you find it relaxing and peaceful.

Until next time, be creative!
