Hats: Instant Gratification

It’s true. Knitting is not for the impatient. But I (and many others) have found hats to be a great project when you want to accomplish something quickly. Also, with the warmer weather, hats can still be worn without making the wearer look as silly as someone who may sport a chunky scarf in 75 degree weather. Anyway, here are some of the hats I’ve made recently!

I found the pattern for the hat above on Ravelry, although I can’t seem to find the pattern anymore. Anyway, do sign up for ravelry if you’re down with the “open source” knitting world. It’s a fantastic site with lots and lots of patterns all for free.

I couldn’t get my sister to stop laughing when I was trying to photograph her in this hat.

This hat was made during my trip to Chicago. You can say I was a knittin’ fool. I knit in the airport, on the plane, etc. Anytime I had downtime I was knitting. Hey! It was my vacation. Anything goes. I like knitting on trips because then I have those memories associated with my projects.

Speaking of knitting on trips, this past weekend I made a quick visit to San Francisco. Ahhhh, love. I went to the Urban Knitting Studio to check out their selection. What a great shop! The owner was really helpful and friendly. I picked up some white and gray wool and some bamboo double pointed needles. Yes… I am making another hat. :)
