HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOUISE!


Congratulations to our dear Louise for passing through another year of glamour and good times. 
Questioned about her birthday she said "It's all been marvelous."
Rosemary and I made her this hat. Louise has a soft spot for turbans and shells, but a loathing of polyester chenielle, and having rather a lot of polyester chenielle in the back room, we thought we would put it to good use. Rosemary made the turban shape on the knitting machine and I crocheted the shells, which go all the way round the hat. By adding a slight sparkle yarn to the chinielle, it took on a lovely crispy quality, which Louise wears so well.
