Hot and not so
My friend Estelle went to Belize. She had a great time. She brought me four bottles of the very popular Sharp's Habanera Sauce. (I already finished one of them.) I like them a lot. I put some on my oatmeal every morning. Umm! Some people think that sounds weird. Those same people eat raw fish. Ick!
I finally finished this hat that I started a few weeks ago. It's for our Dulaan contribution. Now that I've finished the Spanish Dancer shawl I'll be able to concentrate more on making hats and other stuff. I used a couple of yarns I had left over from hats I made for myself a few years ago. The red is possum and merino. I hope no one is allegic to possum. It's very warm and a lot softer than you might think. I don't remember what the blue yarn is. Some kind of wool blend I think.
I have a couple of sweaters started but I don't think I'm going to be able to finish them in time to ship this year. If there's not a next year then I'll find a home for them somewhere else. Anyway, as I mentioned a few weeks ago, our production this year is not so hot. We're really trying to make up for lost time. I think hats are the way to go. More items for more people. Quantity isn't everything but it counts for a lot.
