Schnapps' latest hat is done and ready to be shared. Thank you Annie for the name!
It's been so hot here that Schnapps thought maybe, just maybe, if he made a warm hat it would get cooler. Unfortunately, it didn't.
|He hopes you like this one!|
He's been busy though. After finishing Fear Knot he knit our older pattern, The Edge and realized that it would look great in team colors or school colors or any color combination at all! I think he's on to something!
He's now decided that a nice nap is called for and he's headed to one of his favorite spots! The air conditioning vent!
