the end of the year.

crocheted hat
worked with tapestry wool.

You crown the year with Your bounty,
and Your carts overflow with abundance.
The grasslands of the desert overflow;
the hills are clothed with gladness.
The meadows are covered with flocks
and the valleys are mantled with grain;
they shout for joy and sing.
Ps. 65:11-13

I have spent the last week or so just
playing with yarn scraps. So many 'need to do
projects' the last few months. I must have
needed a little break. I am having SO much fun
just playing with colors and textures.
Here is a collection of tapestry wool that was sent
to me a few months ago. This will make some
very fabulous hats!

this is the first of the wool hats!

two things I have heard:
that You, O God, are strong,
and that You, O Lord, are loving.

according to what he has done.
