Some weekends are just like that.
First off the needles was what was supposed to be my UPS hat:
Supposed to be. I was worried about the hat being too deep as it designed as a man's hat, so I jumped the gun on the decrease shaping and now the hat is too shallow for me... but fits Willow perfectly. She and Papa will look like twins.
Next came the Boy Hat:
I hadn't intended this one for anyone in particular - I toyed with the idea of giving it to Raul because he loves orange, but he may have a thing or two against acrylic hats (nothing but the best for Raul, you know!) The hat doesn't stretch out enough on Willow's head, but it does have some cool decreases:
The last hat was an mindless hat. Willow had a birthday party to go to yesterday and I knew I was going to be sitting around for two hours, so I quickly cast on for a Rolled Brim Hat out of some leftover balls in my small-ball box. Everyone has one of those, right? With all the balls with maybe 20-30 yards left on them? Anyway, this one is mostly made out of leftovers from a baby outfit I made for my friend Teri's daughter, Mikayla:
The only problem was there wasn't quite enough yarn to finish out the top of that hat, so I dug through my small ball box and found this little bit of superwash merino I had dyed with Wiltons icing dye and it matched fairly well:
Mikayla is 16 months old now and the hat may be a little big for her, but I give it to her anyway - a girl can never have too many hats.
Unless you are me and it has been a three hat weekend... and you still don't have one of your own. Oh well - doesn't really matter today - it is 90 frickin' degrees outside!
