I cannot remember who I had in mind when I chose the pattern and yarn. As always, my daughter wants almost everything that comes off of my needles. So, the hat was given to her. Yesterday she decided to break in her Dogwood.
During our entire trip in the car her fingers kept digging under the rib of the hat and pulling the hat off of her forehead.
We had a good laugh at the realization that she is allergic to alpaca. I told her I would make her another Dogwood that will be kinder to her but she said no. After about ten minutes more of pulling and scratching she gave in and handed me the hat.
I will try wearing the hat myself and do an alpaca check. I've learned a lesson here.
If I'd only known.
