But anyway, I'm here to talk about hats. I love hats. Hat hair, not so much, but when it is really cold, I am more about warmth than wonderful looking hair, so I wear hats a lot of time during the winter. One of my plans for the coming year is to make quite a few hats. I want to make three versions of the Turn A Square hat for Christmas gifts for nieces' husbands. I figure if I don't try to do them all at once, I won't get sick of the pattern. I've made a couple for The Tim over the years, and he likes them. Plus, one of the husbands has actually complimented him on his, and said, "Wow, I'd love a hat like that," and since it was the husband I thought was least likely to wear a hat at all, that clinched it! If you haven't tried the pattern you should - it's very simple, and the results are so nice.
Then I have plans for four basic hats as part of the Harry's Hundred Project. I want to do basic ones right now, so that I actually get them done, you know? I have the yarn, and plan to get started this weekend.
As you can see, Jetsam is all about quality control ... :-)
And then, a hat for myself. I keep seeing the Baa-ble Hats that everyone has made, and I just love them! I've seen some in person, and decided I just need to join the crowd and make one for myself.
I am still deciding whether the little sheepies will be gray with white faces or white with gray faces. Also, will they be in a corn field (yellow) under a blue sky? Or will they be in Kentucky bluegrass under a sunny sky? Just making these involved decisions could take much longer than actually knitting the hats ...
Of course, there are many other hats that I would love to knit, but right now, these are at the top of the list.
What about you? Do you wear or knit hats? Do you take a ridiculously long time to make basic decisions about color combos?
