One of my friends was diagnosed with lung cancer recently. I wanted to do something for her that wasnt super emotional (since she isnt the overly emotional type), but would give her a sense of strength when she needs it most. I found a quote online and put it on some paper made by Tibetan monks. The shell printed on the paper is the symbol for victory. The quote says " We gain strength, courage, and confidence by each experience in whice we really stop to look fear in the face. We must do that which we think we cannot".
Thanks! I posted the two loomed hats I made in the hatalong in knitting...you can see they are quite tight...I will donate them to the homeless shelter...
I still want to make hats like yours...I love the beret look!
I love the colors in the second picture! My friends hats have that chunky look to them and she just makes them pretty long. Ive found that around 12inches does the trick for mine. You may have to do them longer for chunkier hats.
Thanks! It is lovely yarn...I thought it was hand spun! I am going to check it out.
What color loom are you using? I used the green one this weekend and both of the hats I made are a little snug on me (maybe I just have a big head )....I am sure they will stretch out a bit...I used the green loom, not the largest one, which in my set, is yellow.
For adults i use the biggest loom. The hats tend to shrink a bit Ive noticed so they seem to fit everyone so far.
