Dolores Hat


I named this hat after my grandmother Dolores. My grandmother was the youngest in her family. And I remember very clearly when I was young she often talked about her eldest sister Lola  Remedios. She looked up to her very much, so fortunate for us that Lola Remedios is still with us. She will be 96 this coming May! How wonderful that is. But she is already so frail, but her smile never fails every time she sees us. 

I made this hat thinking of my grandmother. I could have made this for her, she taught me crochet also, but she is no longer with us. So I made this hat for Lola  Remedios and hope that she will love this. I am not sure if I could get a picture of her wearing this, but I do hope she will love this hat.
