So....I made the half-pipe hat for my best (girl) friend....and I covered it in buttons! She loved it...and I kind of wanted to keep it for myself once I'd finished it!




Slightly sucky picture, but hey, my skillz are knitting, not photography!


Pic from behind, a bit blurry but shows off the lovely turquoise button!

I made the brim from a few layers of cereal box cardboard glued together and then covered with sticky-back plastic. You have to shape it a little when you put it on, but other than that it looks pretty good.

That's awesome - buttons make anything better.

I recently got a friend addicted to knitting.  The look of madness and terror in her eyes as she whispered, "Maybe just one more round and then I'll stop . . ." will warm my twisted heart for weeks.
