You must like purple, Part 2 !

Back in June, I wrote a 'tongue in cheek' post about liking the colour purple. Well now I have some more to add on the subject.
Annette, who I have befriended through my knitting group, came to the Grovely Knit and Natter group one Saturday with the sweetest hat that she had knitted and then felted. (She had been experimenting with felting for quite a while and last year made some beautiful little girls' felted handbags which were so cute!) Any way this hat that Annette had brought in, had a white fabric rose on it and I just had to try it on. Others there in the shop that morning, remarked that it suited me, so I joked with Annette, 'Could you make a purple one?'

The only photo that I could find of Annette is this one taken at Yarn Over. Annette is the lady in the middle of the photo who is making a beanie on a loom.
The following month at that K&N, lo and behold...there was a purple felted hat with a black fabric flower attached to it on display and for sale...I JUST HAD to try it on... it fitted perfectly!



Gabby, the owner of the shop where we have that K&N said that Annette had left the hat in the shop to be sold...
So I bought it!!! But you knew I would didn't you??? :-)
