I was going to say that I wish I could remember how long it took me to make this bonnet.
But I don’t.
It was a really cool project, using the pattern from Card, Knit, Wear: Unspun Caps by Carol Huebscher Rhoades in the Winter 2008 issue of Spin-Off Magazine. (I happened to have spun and plied my alpaca, instead of making an unspun cap. That was a good move, because I ended up reknitting most of it several times, trying to get the pattern right.
But the lovely Brooke seems to like it.
(Probably because Auntie Jen is a hippie).
