I finished my Hansel Hap by Gudrun Johnston this week. I knit this out of alpaca from the orchard where the kids and I spend as much time as possible in the fall. I have many wonderful memories at the orchard, and wearing the shawl is a nice reminder of those memories. It’s also a nice reminder that I love smooshy yarn. And soft things.
I knit the full hap, which is a square. The pattern also has directions for a half hap. Knitting a full hap had been on my knitting bucket list for a couple of years. Now that I have one I’m fairly certain I will knit more. Having two layers of fabric in the shawl makes it so darn warm.
Now that I’m done with the shawl I suppose I’ll have to work on John’s darn socks. Also I have a pair of John’s socks to darn. Darn John and his socks.
