Our Refuge from the Storm
Our evacuation was stressful and tiring, but once we arrived, we began to recover and relax. We were blessed to find refuge in such a beautiful place, Feathered Horse Ranch Bed and Breakfast in Comfort, Texas. Everyone staying here had evacuated from the Houston area. This B&B is unique in that it has facilities for boarding horses. Two families traveling together had evacuated with two small children, three dogs and six horses. Can you imagine what they went through to get here? While we were here we took advantage of the quite countryside and really did nothing at all. It was just what we needed to prepare for our trip back. I found plenty of time for knitting and was able to make some more hats to finish up New Hat Week that I started before we left. Some I liked and some I didn't. But, I'll show you all of them here this week along with some more pictures of the Texas Hill Country.
This was one I really liked, Hat For Newborn Baby. I didn't change anything in the pattern and it knit up easily. The yarn I used is Red Heart Baby Teri. It has a nice soft texture. Unfortunately, I cannot find it in the stores anymore. This hat has an interesting shape that reminds me of a pixie hat. You could knit it plain without the eyelet row if you wanted. Either way would be nice. This hat will fit a 3-5 lb baby.
Correction: I forgot that I did change one thing. I knitted this hat in the round on dpns in the recommended sizes. I adapted it myself, but here it is already done for you. I really should pay better attention.
