* Daughter Erica and I went to Joann Fabrics Friday evening. I got 2 skeins of yarn that is brand new to me - I've never heard of it or seen it before. It's called Lion Brand Keppi.
Each skein is 2.3 oz., and is 80% acrylic, 20% polyester. They were on sale for $3.99 each. The big puffy thing on top of the skein is a giant pom-pom. The wrapper says that 'one ball makes a hat from baby to adult size small'. Not really. I started a hat for my great-niece Lena and only got this far:
I went through my yarns and had to add more. This is the finished hat:
In the top picture of the back, you can see where I had to go back and sew in some dark pink variegated eyelash yarn just so it could match a little.
I'll make a baby hat with the turquoise skein.
* I got cat-called. I know that shouldn't make me smile, but it did. I'm a 52 year old grandma and that hasn't happened in a looooong time. :)
