- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

On the hook...
Another Cloche Hat...( see previous post about the pattern ).I stopped by JoAnn's and found some chunky yarn as the pattern calls for. I couldn't find the exact cranberry color in solid yarn as I would have liked, but did find a nice varigated which does have a lovely cranberry mixed in, and I think it will do fine. The last time I made this hat I used 2 strands of Caron Simply Soft. Worked fine, but I wondered how much better it would work out if I used the the correct yarn for the pattern. It may make no noticeable difference, we'll see.
