Happy Light Derg HAT

Happy Light Derg because it was finish on the coast of Lough Derg lake in Co. Clare in IRELAND. It is nice to plan a weekend and go somewhere not too far but still feel that rest and tranquillity.

Hat was made especially for October's GIVEAWAY. It took me 2 days, I knit a bit here and a bit there. No pressure. You can check my Instagram to see more photos. Next headband.
