I'm challenged with color correcting for reds and pinks. In spite of how it looks in the photos, this hat is a beautiful dusty rose color.

Obligatory bathroom mirror shot

It's for a woman who has gone through a lot. I hope she wears this in good health and in good spirits.

  • Hey, thanks for stopping by! :-) I'm so glad I went to see The Tubes...it was a last minute thing and at first we were all kinda 'meh' about it, but WOW...that Fee Waybill is a CHARACTER!

    Great FO's, I wish I was that knitting productive. :-|
