I look fab in hats... almost any kind of hat, but especially cowboy hats.  Too bad, really, since I come from Hippie-town British Columbia instead of Farm-City Alberta!   Sad
Oh well... I made myself a midaeval-style winter hat that will tide me over until it's sun-hat season.

I look like my head is the size of a grape if I put a hat on. Sad  I always admire those who can pull off a good hat.

Jennye, where did you get that hat? Did you make it? I'd LOVE to have one.

Lekaiya, I did make that hat!  I can't post the pattern for the hat, because I got it from a magazine and I'm pretty sure it's legally wrong to recopy it here, but this one http://groups.msn.com/HappyHookeraCrochetersParadise/memberpatterns.msnw?action=get_message&mview=0&ID_Message=13704&LastModified=4675481976218776363 is almost the exact same thing (except for the brim, duh).  I used Caron Simply Soft in black and an I hook.  For the bow (which I came up with myself, no pattern copyright issues), I chained 58, then did 1 sc in each, to make it wide enough, and formed it into a bow and sewed it down.  I used a double strand of white thread and a big needle to stitch the border.  Glad you like it!

Here's my bucket hat.  Which really isn't a bucket hat at all.  It was supposed to be, but it came out to be a hat just like Sean Connery wears in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.  Anyway, I almost look okay in it, so I'm excited.  It does way more for me than the flapper hat does.  Okay, so here it is:

I apologize for the picture quality, I had to take it myself in the mirror.

And I don't look good in leggings.

hats are alright but *earmuffs* is where it's at.  I think they are way cuter.  I'd like to figure out how to make an earmuff frame...maybe out of coat hangers?  should this be a different thread? 

okay here is a picture of me in a hat that i made.  maybe that will make my post here more legit.  and also prove that i look better in earmuffs!
