Six Hats for Alex

I've been a knitting rut of late.

I had all these cute sweaters planned for Willow and then the dress code caught me unaware and all those cute projects fell along the wayside. I have finished one school sweater for her and am working on another... but it is so ho-hum. Both my sisters are pregnant right now and a dear co-worker's wife just had a baby on Wednesday and I really should be making something for them as well... but I am having such a hard time getting to it.

So what do I do when I am wallowing?

I knit hats.

These hats are all for Hats for Alex and I hope to get them in the mail tomorrow. From L to R: 1) My own hand-dyed Patons Classic Wool; 2) Bernat Twist; 3) Lots of Wool-ease leftovers; 4) Something that had been in my stash so long I no longer had a ball band for; 5) Lots of acrylic leftovers; and 6) Patons Decor. At least someone will benefit from my rut!

The blue stripe one is more adult-sized... but I figure there must be a teenager or a pre-teen with lots of hair at this hospital:

Who am I kidding? I'm 34 - I only get carded once in a blue moon now.

Do you have a basic hat recipe you go by for the Alex hats? I need to get my ass in gear and knit some up.
