Come on out to support the animals and visit the nearby vineyards!
Sue, here are some pix of your hat; it is about 70% there. Some parts need to be filled in more so the hat base doesn’t show. How do you feel about the colors, length, fullness? I know you wanted more dreads and less yarn fringe.
Sue, some yarn/color swatches for you to look at.
Your pink and brown newsboy hat is ready! Check your email for shipping/payment info. Thank you!!

Jane, here are the two ponchos. Same design, different sizes. Both ponchos have an asymmetrical hem: straight across one edge and a “V” point on the other. Wear it however you wish– point in the front, in the back or over your shoulder– there is no right or wrong way. (Although if we add armholes, you’d probably only wear it that one way.)
The first six pictures are of a shorter version you have not seen, it was another custom order. Click on each picture to flip through; I’ve added a description underneath each to explain. Is the shorter one better?
