Sammy's Special Skully!

My friend Sammy was sad to find her hat mysteriously unraveled one day ...

In desperation she brought it to The Raggy Rat because sometimes miracles can be performed ....

I'm not a knitter but I knew I would have to pick up all of these stitches, gather them together and attach the bobble more firmly once again. I turned the hat inside out and used double embroidery thread. That would be 12 strands then!

Finally, it's done and looks like a hat again! It's very satisfying fixing broken things and sometimes broken hearts. And yes, I really cannot knit. I have tried.  People have been cross with me. I can still fix your knitted hat though!
