A couple of years ago I made a hat. Remember it?
I remember it because it has been my only successful hat...ever. I must have a bowling ball shaped head because this round beret is the only hat I've made that will stay on my head. As good as I am making socks I am horrible making hats. Well not making hats they look nice, they just fit me horribly. I was so proud of that hat that I gave it to my Mom.
My thought at the time was I can always make another. Yeah I could've but I didn't. Socks must just hold all my fascination. I kept on knitting sock after sock and even a few sweaters. Oh heck I even tried another hat. Not that I've taken a picture of it or told you anything about it.
Finally the other day I thought to myself...my head is cold! I should probably make another hat that I know has decent odds of being worn. So I did.
Modeled here by His Royal Cattiness Gustav the Magnificent.
Woman, you're trying my patience!
You know I prefer shawls to hats.
I made this one even a bit longer so it is even less tempted to pop up off my ears. Yeah I am pretty happy with it even if Gus is not.
