Remember the eyelash yarn I was knitting up into an earflap hat?
Yeah, that's right this one. Boy was it hard to work with. I did discover that doing it with real light coming in behind it made it easier. But the usual way of finishing the top of my ear flap hat, is to get down to about eight or so stitches and then pull the yarn, with a crochet hook, through the remaining loops. Works great with other yarns, not so much with this stuff. I lost several rows of the top of the hat when I couldn't bring the yarn through, argh.
I finished it in spite of my inabilities. Then the lucky recipient opened their belated Christmas gift a few weeks ago and proudly wore their new hat ...
No, not Dirt, it isn't his hat! Although it could come in handy under his motersickle helmet or I'm thinking or it could have been handy while cutting down the trees our neighbor advised that Dirt get a professional to take down. You know that fluffy hat could keep a fir tree from tuning a person into a ground stake.
But really, if you want to see the real person who got the hat of the year go here and you will see the little cuties who received a couple of my hat adventures.
Dear Reader, I gotta go to bed, it's after midnight and I gotta get outa vacation hours and back to regular hours - like Dirt says, "five o'clock comes awful early," he says that when he wears pink hats and when he doesn't! So its gotta be true.
Okay, so now it is toot-a-loo time.
