I started this hat with really no one in mind. I used sons fabulously soft wool and knew that it would be a great gift no matter who I decided to give it to. Heck, I almost kept it myself.
The pattern was super fun and it knitted up quite nicely. I am beginning to have quite the collection of Addi Turbo Needles and it is so nice to find a pattern, then be able to grab yarn and the needles right out of my room. I don’t even have to go shop.
Although when you throw in a needle every time you shop from Amazon, they add up quickly. Let’s just say Amazon.com is my greatest friend. When you live an hour and a half from the nearest Walmart and even further from a good yarn store, you begin to order everything you can online. I can have it delivered free and I don’t even have to get outside.
Anyway, Kristie tried on several hats that I had made over Christmas, but this one looked really good on her. I thought the green went wonderfully with her eyes and her hair. Hopefully she agrees and will wear it when it gets cold. Here at our place we wear hats everyday. If it’s not to keep the cold out. It’s to keep the wind out. So making hats is not only fun, but functional and we love them.
