Spent the day not doing some house projects I’d hoped to get around to – seemed like a good day to kick back and just chill a bit….So I spent the time I’d planned on doing some Fall Clearing Out working up this hat. It’s a variation on the L.A.M.B inspired hat on Ravelry. (Modeled by my ever fabulous yet very serious youngest.)
I decided to use Caron Eco Soft just ’cause. Figured it was worth a whirl, and would turn out with a nice texture/feel. It did, but based on the exact pattern it’s a bit small for me – which is a shame, as it’s kinda fun.
I was thinking of gifting it, but it’s a bit funky for most of the potential recipients I can think of. I may give it to Eldest Son’s girlfriend – she *does* have a birthday coming up and she’s a petite little thing. I’ve no doubt it’d fit her well. My only thought is whether she’d like it….Hmm.
LOL – on the other hand, Youngest just reminded me that *his* birthday is in a few days as well, and he’s pretty fond of the hat as well. He has just enough panache to pull it off, too – da boy knows how to wear clothes. Certainly doesn’t get that from me. o.O
Two more pics are below – sorry that last one is blurry – as you might be able to tell, I took these in a hurry.
