Our friends from Hawaii, John and Kyle, were visiting their kids in Santa Cruz so we did a meet up on Friday at Monterey's (old) Fisherman's Wharf for lunch.  It was an easy 2-hour drive for us.  We enjoyed our delicious meal at Rappa's - the last restaurant at the end of the pier.  But mostly we enjoyed seeing our friends again and catching up.

I made a Brambles Beret for Kyle.  I used Cascade 220, colorway "Olive Heather".  I hesitate using non-superwash yarn for folks in Hawaii because generally we are not wool-savvyOnce, I found a doll-sized hat I made for my brother sitting on top of the dryer.  But I think Kyle understands felting and shrinkage.  Besides she is knit-worthy and I can always make her another hat.  In superwash yarn.

*Superwash wool is a special wool product that has been treated or processed in a way that allows it to be machine washable.
