All the pretty creatures

Five-fold symmetry is always pretty:


Starfish


Sand Dollar


Sea Urchin


Dale of Norway Hat

Hat in progress from this Dale of Norway pattern (book #161) using Falk and Heilo yarn. A little bit of finishing and embellishing still to be done, but it should be ready for recipient in a week or two when she is coming to visit the frigid North!

  1. All are beautiful but I think I'd prefer the hat on my head rather than a sea urchin any day!

  10. Your friend is going to love that hat! I would recommend wearing a hat underneath it. I've been layering 2 hats lately. It's the only way to survive outside.
