Hat Mania

I don't know why I only just feel like making hats these days. But I do seem to be getting tired of them.

This one was for a co-worker. I gave it to him last week and he was very pleased.

I actually set out to make this one for myself, but I ran out of yarn. The idea was to make a wide band of ribbing, then have it poof out a little, kind of like a beret, then come back in again. This would have been a specially made hat to accommodate my large, rather strangely shaped head. Even though I have a big head, it is sort of pointy at the top. I thought it would be a good idea to try and camoflauge the shape of my head. Anyway, it didn't work since I ran out of yarn but it came out kind of cute for someone with a smaller head than I or my kids. Perhaps a toddler or someone with a pinhead, like my friend B. I only say "pinhead" because I'm terribly jealous of her little, ladylike head. I have to stand three feet behind her when we take a picture so I won't look like a giantess. It's embarrassing, let me tell you.

This is the beginning of a hat for my co-worker's wife. He mentioned that she loved his hat. When I asked what color she might like, he said white. So I'm putting a little pattern in to keep it from being totally blah. Can you see it? It's got a diagonal patterning to it.

I don't know why I am so hat crazy. But I really am using a lot of stash yarn up, so that is a good thing.

It cracks me up that Kai won't let you take a picture of his face. I can just hear the begging, the cajoling, the threats that had to go into getting him to at least let you photograph the hat on his head.

Yea, and it's fine with me as long as I can see the hat. Kids!
