Capitan

Here's the Capitan hat I finished a couple of days ago. I've tried it on several times, hoping to get used to it, but I really think that it's just too small. Of course, it could change with a good blocking - my malabrigo beret and clapotis, which were involved in last week's mass blocking, stretched out a bit. Maybe I'll try that before i gift it away. I know I have another sachet of Soak somewhere.....Speaking of the beret and clapotis....I wore both last night. It was raining cats and dogs here in FL, so I needed a little coverup from car to restaurant on date night. The clapotis felt so velvety good. And the blocking really sharpened the edge of the beret, making it look more like, erm, a beret. Blocking really IS a revelation.

And today, the Lord is risen. Along with a billion others in our parish who don't normally attend 8.30am mass. Not only was our new church packed to overflowing, but so was the old church building. Yes, 2 simultaneous masses, FULL of people.

This wouldn't happen in the UK. God bless America!

And a happy Easter to you all. :-)

And I leave you with a couple of Easter cuties :-)

Happy Easter Disco!! Looks like the boys had a great time!

The hat is cute in malabrigo! Mine didn't quite fit me (well it was meant for Rowan anyways) and alpaca grows a bit more than malabrigo I think. Try the blocking though!

Awww! Look at those sweet little egg hunters!!

My Capitan is about the same size as yours...it didn't occur to me to block the heck out of it.

Aww they are too cute!

Nice job on the Capitan, I like the look in Malabrigo too! It's not just yours, mine's a bit smallish too, wondering if blocking would help as well.

That hat is adorable! Mine fits fine but I can't get the brim as nice looking as yours.

Happy Easter! (hehe, I can guarantee that you'll find a prime seat in chruch next weekend)

Adorable cuties they are! I guess the masses at mass were what my cousin identifies herself as: a C & E Catholic! Christmas and Easter!-lol!

It looks like the Capitan hat runs shallow. I haven't gotten around to making mine yet and hope it works our for me...
