I love to knit hats. They just . . . WORK for me. I can do them without much effort and don't even end up in my typical double pointed needle curse-a-thon when I get to the decreasing for the crown part. I can rip hats off my needles in factory style efficiency. So many of the men in my life get, guess what, for Christmas? Yep, hats. Now do I remember to always photograph said hats? Eh . . . no. I made two hats for my sister this year with not a shot to share. Oh and I made THE CUTEST little bear cub hat for my best friend's little one and don't have a picture of that either. Le sigh . . .
However I did seem to remember to shoot this one:
That would be my brother-in-law modeling his Empire hat (fit with a Storm Trooper on the front, to boot). This hat is made from acrylic yarn (wool makes him itch) and I found the Star Wars knitting patterns here. He seemed happy with it. :)
My absolute favorite hat of the season was made for my cousin Kyle:
Nice. :) Made of lots and lots of wool and I'm hoping to write out the pattern for this puppy as soon as I can.
Had to stick that shot of Mandi in there. Glad my family is full of people with Hattitude. :)

PS - still recovering and feeling much much better. Thank you all for the kind words. I'll see the doctor on Monday!
