Curly Q Hat by Hélène Rush
Needle: US 8 - 5.0 mm
Yarn: Feline Fibers 2-ply wool
How much? 0.9 skeins = 108.0 yards (98.8m)
Purchased at: Black Mountain Weavers in Point Reyes Station, California

Someday I will learn how to compensate for the fact that I knit really loosely. The hat came out too big around. So I felted it.

Someday I will learn how to pay attention to the washing machine when I felt something. It felted it a bit more than I intended it to.

Now the shape is sort of cloche-like. I like it in an “embracing serendipity” sort of way.

My knitting and felting is slowly teaching me to appreciate serendipity, too. :)

Well done you!

I think the cloche will totally be the new fashion :-).
