Day 35, 26 hats, oh my!

Oh my goodness, am I behind or what??? 9 hats behind, in fact! This is a tough time of year to be keeping this schedule. There are winterizing things to do and Christmas things to do and Thanksgiving things to do. Howmsoever...I'm sure I'll have lots of time to catch up after the first of the year, so why worry? It only takes 4 hours for me to make a hat; one would think I could fit that in every day. But, stuff happens and, well, here I am. This picture is one of the hats I made in the last couple days. It doesn't show as well as I'd like in this picture, but the yarn is really beautiful. It is so gorgeous in person that I called the company I bought it from originally to see if I can buy more. They are going to send me pics of what is available now, but this one is not. I'm so sad. The color is called Mermaid and includes blues, purples and greens. The derby is definitely my favorite hat style. I looks great on everyone and it's easy to add flowers and other embellishments.


  1. Love the colors, is it felted? Good luck with you quest. We're still plugging knitting and crocheting hats, scarves, mittens, slippers, and squares to warm homeless.
