Hand Crafting

A hand crafted thing is totally different from one made in a factory. This is the beginning of a dinosaur hat, commissioned by a young customer. He is only five, but he wants to be an archaeologist and palaeontologist when he grows up!

This hat will be individually designed and crafted by me, with love and magic in every stitch. Yesterday I cast on the stitches, on my beautiful birch wood needles. Today I sat in the first warm spring sunshine in my garden and listened to the birds singing as I worked. Imagine the magical energy this hat is going to have!
