Christmas in Summer

MMario's picture

I like to give gifts to my summer staff at the end of the season - I see these people 16 days out of the year, most of them. So "Christmas" in the summer. This year I am making them all variations on the Archery Target Beanie.

At least I hope to. Started the first last night - and got about a third of the way done without pushing. I'm using Valley Yarns 'Berkshire' from webs - a wool/alpaca blend.

August Ten, the Year of Our

August Ten, the Year of Our Lord ONe thousand, Four Score and Five.

This day I have presented my loyal employees and fellow indentured servants of the Spainards with the caps I have knit for them of good wool mixed with New World Camel in the manner of Archery targets. I have but four to complete, One for Don Juan, and one for his Good Lady; one for Don Juan's loyal compainion Miguel and the last for Captain Chrisopher Pike of Her Majetie's archers. I *think* they were well received by the seven people who are in possession already. The merchant whose shop is next along the lane doth claim that it were the hats which caused the hail storm on this day; for she said it was too much for the Lord to resist seeing the targets upon such sinners.

Hey, it looks like a fun

Hey, it looks like a fun project and should be a snap for you. How many do you have to make? You are such a giver that I'm wondering how to adopt you.
