Hats Off

Isn't she a sweetie? I wanted to make a felted hat but all I had to dry it on was a series of bowls, none of which matched my head shape. So, Knit told me I could refelt it if I got a hat form. One of my friends is a craftaholic and when I mentioned to her that I needed a head form and asked if she happened to have one she said, "Sure, in the garage." And she went right to it. (How many of you could find something that quickly in your garage?). So I refelted and shaped it on Betty Boop here and it turned out just the way I planned it to. It was great fun and you'll probably start to see many felted hats in the future. They are light and very warm and keep the snow from soaking through.
