The original fabric is the one below - as well wool bland, but lighter colour.
Now I will send the hat to my mother so she can try it on.
Meanwhile I will make another model from a fabric I have bought some time ago – it is called parachute fabric – and it is water-resistant. It look perfect for this period of the year with this heavy raining coming this way. First I will make a black one – the grey fabric has to wait a little.
Together with the fabric for the had me and my mother have bought a knitted fabric – jersey (wool bland) – for shawl. It is nice light lavender colour. I took a tread from this fabric to finished the edges of the shawl – I have crochet them.
The idea of crocheting came on Friday evening so Saturday I have rushed to a shop to buy a crochet-hook - it was not ease to find a shop selling it. I know online shops where I could easy find it but buying online would mean having delivered the hook on Tuesday… I could not (I did not want to) wait so long.
In the end I have managed to buy one. It was strange feeling having the crochet-hook in my hand for the first time after many years…
And then I have realised I should focus on the French jacket… next week.
BTW – have you seen the newest issue of the Threads Magazine? It is fabulous!
One of the articles is about Linton Tweeds used for Chanel jackets.
