|Pattern: Nola Cloche by Hilary Smith Callis Yarn: Supernova in colorway Pewter by Luna Grey Fiber Arts|
speaking of drama true to shannon style i have a confession to make. you ready for it? i. made. an. oopsie. a big one at that. i realized right at the end of making my hat that i had actually been following the size instructions for a chunky yarn not my worsted weight. oh my. helloooo...shannon...do you need glasses? more sleep? more coffee? who knows...but i can't believe i missed it. duh. the nola cloche is written for 2 yarn weights and i'm not sure how i got so mixed up but i did. i hate ripping things out though so instead of redoing the whole hat (ouch!) i kept going. i tried that bad boy on and i like it. it's not perfect but it's mine and well, that's the nature of handmade right?
i really enjoyed this pattern and i also really loved working with luna grey fiber arts yarn and have a few more lovely skeins to play with. i can't wait to dig in! both the yarn and the pattern made for a fun project even though i made an oopsies. such is life thought right? remember this big fat oopsie of mine? oh ya....that's a good'er right there. moral of the story - pay better attention to the directions, get more sleep and drink more coffee ;)
