Everyone needs a collection of ridiculous hats. It's just a fact.
I've just rediscovered knitting, and found a fantastically soft, textured yarn in the box of weird and unloved yarns in the basement.
One of my best friends from high school is expecting her first baby any day now (in fact I think she reached term today).
Obviously, these three facts led me to knit a hat for Peanut when he or she arrives. I'm rather proud of how it turned out. I didn't use a pattern, I just had one of those eureka moments and knew how I could make it.
Sorry for the shoddy picture quality, I can't actually find my camera right now, I'll try and put better pics up tomorrow, but here we go...
I might pick up some more yarn and make a hat like this for myself. Who doesn't love them some tassels, I ask you?
