I'm out in Seattle visiting my parents for Christmas (I'm from Chicago).  While walking around in the rain, I decided I needed a hat.  My mom brought out her stash and I just started messing around.  I love crocheting hats because it goes so quickly--it's a matter of hours as opposed to a matter of days for knitting.  Anyway, this is what I came up with:

Inside
Outside
Back
Front
(You never realize how dirty your bathroom mirror is until you start taking pictures with the flash...)

It's incredibly warm because it's so thick.  I alternated popcorn stitch (5 dcs) with one sc, and then every odd-numbered row was just sc all around.  Very easy!  It took over one skein of Wool Ease Chunky, which is why there's a band of light grey.

I loved your hat and your slide show did you make everything in the show?

Late, I know, but adorable hat! And I just have to say that I hope you enjoyed your Pacific Northwest Christmas! Being a midwest transplant myself, I know it's completely different from an Illinois Christmas!

Great hat. Don't you just love how it rains so much in Seattle? I live about 45 minutes away just over the Narrow's bridge.

Thanks, guys!  You all make me feel so good. 

Seattle's interesting.  Every morning it was gorgeous--clear, blue sky and lots of sun--but by 2pm it's all rain.

Kerry Berry, make sure you try to come back in the summer. A lot of days, it starts off chilly and then by mid-afternoon, it's absolutely fabulous. And not so humid that you can't breath!

I love your berret!  It looks so good on you too.  I have one that a friend gave me, but it looks really silly on me.  Glad to know someone can really pull that look off!  Good job!

My husband says I should cut back.
I tell him, it's better than a really bad drug problem.
