Another Day, another hat

I don't know if you noticed, but the hat that I made last weekend, was way too small. I didn't realize this until my daughter tried it on, and I thought that it looked pretty good on her. (This is a picture of my 2 year old in the hat, but the 6 year old inherited it.)

It was good that the 6 year old got the hat, because that hooded sweater that I made for her was put in the laundry by my lovely husband, and now the sweater fits my little one. (There were lots of tears, and an order for another sweater.)

Anyway..... So, I loved the fact that the green hat had a brim that was doubled, so that my ears would stay warm - which is a definite priority these days. I found my malabrigo and whipped up this hat, using Ann Budd's book of patterns. I love the way it feels.

Hats are super satisfying because they are so quick!

Stay warm and knit with yarn you love,

Oh gosh, sounds like lots of success and misfires! At least the too small hat and too small sweater found new owners.

You left a comment on my blog regarding house hunting... for now we are looking out in the 'burbs. We would love to live in Newton if we could find an affordable house!
