My Lace hat

I posted it in January when I finished knitting it but just this last weekend finally got it blocked… thanks to Sis’s hat form and bottle of starch! It’s not a very practical hat for my ‘lifestyle’ but it is pretty. If you want to knit something a little different but not all that difficult, this is a good one. It’s from Gathering Of Lace by Meg Swanson. I used a linen thread. I don’t know much about thread sizes but I’d compare it to, maybe, a size #10 crochet thread. Smaller than bedspread cotton, anyway. The ribbon is a sheer that pretty well matches in color. I thought a hat this delicate needed a delicate hat band, too. Now I just have to figure out where to keep it. Oh… I just remembered… I have my Great Aunt’s hat box. I wonder if it’d fit. Better go check that out! 🙂
