A sad day it is.
I found out that the hat I had designed, spun and crocheted for my little sister for Christmas found it's handwash-only way into a washing machine there to be felted into a tiny fuzzy mess. A sad day indeed.
The original Beyond The Sea hat is no more...
To mark this sad occasion, I'm making the Ravelry download free, and have added it to my Download section, on the right.
