Hats With Hatitude!

I like hats, no actually not quite true, I love hats! I have lots of them and I also love to knit them. I tend to lean on the slightly outrageous side when I create my hats. I also never follow a pattern.

I know, it’s true I am a bit crazy but when I get all those balls of yarn together in a pile of brilliant colours and textures I have to just follow what the yarn says! Yes yarn does talk to me, especially the colours of yarn. Some colours get really fussy about who they get grouped with and just will not get along if they don’t have the same mojo going on. Weird maybe but I am telling you yarn can have some serious attitude!

Here now I will show you some hats that I have done over the last few years. These hats have all gone to live with the person that found and loved them and are no longer

This one I used some of my mom's handspun yarn and even tied in a few dyed mohair curls she gave me. It is one warm cozy hat!

I was playing with colors I don't often go for when I started with the orange and added in the raspberry and lavender color. I ended up trimming some of the dangling bits that fell into the wearer's eyes. Art gets vetoed by comfort in this case.
