"Simply Gorgeous!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I initially purchased this item for my friend as purple is her favorite color. After receiving the shawl, I havent been able to part with it. It is so beautiful. It is not just one color; its a blend, so it compliments other colors. I may keep it, and pass it on to my grand-daughter. Checking to see if there are other colors.

Bought this hat to go with an orange scarf and mitts by the same artist, and he (and all those working with him) are that: artists. Beautiful hat, beautiful workmanship, worth every cent. I love it.

"Beautiful hat, frustrated with fit"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This hat is a true work of art, which is what I have come to expect from this artist. Her textile and design skills are amazing. I cherish every item I have from her, and I am always excited when she brings out something new. I am frustrated, though, as to how knitted hats are measured. The numbers given for hat dimensions are meaningless, and they do not help in deciding if a hat will fit. I have three different hats that were presented as having the same measurements: one is a perfect, comfortable fit, just very slightly loose; the second is snugger than I like but wearable; and the third is so small and tight that it gives me headaches!!! I understand that handmade items will vary but this is beyond reasonable! This applies to hats from multiple artists. If I buy something, I would like to know that I will have the pleasure of wearing it. At this point, anytime that i order a hat i feel that it is a toss up as to who will get to wear it: me or my 8 year old neighbor.
