After Christmas we headed up to Oregon to spend some time in the snow. As we were packing to leave sunny California (where it is unseasonably cold at 55 degrees) to head to sub freezing temperatures I realized something that amazed me. Astounded me really. I. Have. No. Hats! Can you believe it? Me of the ever loving, hat knitting craze? Seems I've given them all away!
There was only one solution. Quick - knit a hat! I found some very soft pink angora mix that I had used to make a hat for my niece (the one with the cool picot edging) and some great thick purple yarn and viola! A hat for me. It is a little big but works well without messing up the hair too much. Then I couldn't stop. I cast on another on the drive up. Next I used some Luxor yarn in gold. If you haven't ever tried it you should. Luxor is really cool and has a somewhat metalic look to it. I made a silver one in the summer for the chemo cap donations. I ended up making it a bit too small (I have a big head) so it will ultimately end up as a gift to someone. Then when I finished that I cast on another and another! When will it stop? I hope everyone has a fun filled, knit filled and hat filled New Years!
