The Finished Hat

So this week I managed to finished the hat in my last post.

I left you with this picture:

Next I covered it and rubbed it for a while. then rolled it up and into the dryer with no heat for 10 min. while I was waiting for that I started to lay out another hat. After the first tumble I took the hat out flipped and rotated it and rolled it up again. you can see the other hat I am working on under the bundle.

After a few turns in the dryer I cut the hat open and shifted it so I would not be felting in the seam crease.

I continued to roll it in the dryer shifting the hat on the resist each time. Once is had shrunk some, I continued to full it by hand.  This is what it looked like still wet and in need of a rinse.

and this is after it has been rinsed reblocked and dry. not really much different. the close up picture is a truer picture colour wise. it is a light silvery grey with pink and grey accents.

I like it, it is simple but interesting. I think I will leave this one the way it is. the next on in this style may be more embellishment after there fact. I need to dye more silk hankies.
