Put your Hat on this Winter ...

Because it looks like we'll have a "White Christmas" and a very cold Winter this year.

My intuitive knitting gene helped me to produce some finished MIA's ....


For a granddaughter perhaps?


Can't tell you the pattern because I started it last Spring and sort of made it up as I went along with left over yarns. This past weekend I simply finished it up with a ribbed brim. I kind of like it. Hope one of the grand daughters will also.

Then there was this crazy mishap of a hat. Came out too big but rather than ripping it, I felted it and then knitted on a ribbed brim. It's still a little loose. Wonder if someone could still make it work. Someone with a bigger head?

What to you think? Is it salvageable?
Other than needing a little shaving that is.


Another one I made up as I went along ... that's why it took so long to finish. It's made up of Blue Sky Alpaca Chunky Dualtones (gray) and Cascade 220 (black).

But then I have also knit a Beret for myself. This one is a keeper ...
