This hat just flew off the needles, and I love it. These big hats intended for boys also seem to work with my incredibly big hair, which means I may need to cast on for another. This grey/green version out of AVFKW falklands in The Silent Undergrowth colorway has more drape — again, maybe because it is a 2-ply, but also because the yarn seemed a bit thinner as I was working with it. (I used the same needles: US 6 for the ribbing, 7 for the st portion and decreases. WPI tool, are you hiding under piles of fiber?) Also, for those counting ounces, I started with 3 oz. of fiber, and I have .45 oz. of yarn remaining.
Here it is, with the brim unfolded. Perfect for big hair, no? (The colors are too wonderfully gift-able for me to keep this, particular when compared to the bright. cheery pile of handspun taking up space on the bookshelf. I can still try it on a bunch before the holidays, right?)
Alright. Onward to a few photos of the fun parts of Saturday:
Snoring dog, hot cocoa made with milk on the stove, the New Yorker…
Snail hat, handspun cowl, thanksgiving day mitts: necessary for a nice walk along the reservoir.
Boh continues to stretch and snore. I imagine he’ll be doing lots more of this later today, as his greyhound friend (and his people) will be here (with breakfast!) in about twenty minutes. Boh has no idea.
Fabulous hat! What a great project for handspun. I can’t handle the huge amount of cuteness of that dog!!
the hat is great!
Now you just have an excuse to make one for yourself. Right away.
The hat is awesome, and as a fellow big-haired lady, I’m thinking about what yarn I have in the stash that would be suitable. I hope Boh enjoys breakfast …
These look like the perfect holiday hats for all the men in my life (and probably for me, too–they look so all-purpose!). Another beautiful hat!
Another great hat!
You’re beautifully decked out in knits for a walk. Enjoy your hot cocoa, reservoir walk and breakfast guests. Guests who bring breakfast are the best kind. :)
