Sally..again..me..yep. So I thought to myself who else in that "scantily clad bottom" town would make a good hat and yes..you guessed it... it.. hit me.. Pine to the apple, hell to the yes.

This one was a wee bit trickier than the rest but I L O V E it.. looooove it. Wear it out in public love it. At least I get smiles all day...did I mention I love it?  Ok so I knit an orange hat.. easy enough. Then weaved a web of criss crossy ness and added dimples in the resulting diamond shapes. I knit the front door, the garage door (in the back) three windows and the chimney, whipped up the pieces for the top and used the awesome i-cord technique yet again for the flowers and the door...handle thingy and edges. When I finally attached all of those things I thought to myself, no one in this modern society could possibly NOT know what this is..but for good measure I made a mini version of the first hat, sewed his bikini bottom shut and perched him atop his amazing abode so as to leave no room for question.

I also have other ideas, like the star guys rock as a hat.. easy peasy... Plankton..genius! This particular hat is a one of a kind, didn't bother making a pattern for it. Was such a pain I don't think I ever will again. But I shared what I could and if anyone has any questions feel free. Hope you got a smile out of it!

Here's what it looks like on mah head

We should all fear evil men, but what we should fear most, is the indifference of good men. On a lighter note..have you smiled today? If you have not, Just DO IT! If you have..do it again!

I love love love all your great hats!! I can't believe you had only been knitting, what was it....three months...when you started Spongebob...that is amazing!!

I also love that you just decided that since you where pregnant you needed to know how to knit and just dove in...I've been trying to learn off and on forever and never make it past a few inches of work..lol

Thanks for all your great comments, I didn't need to put blush on today! When I first started making the hats my now ex had me make a few of the spongebob and he sold them, I gave one to Edie Falco for her son and although he's now grown out of it he still displays it proudly..yay!
This one I still have and don't plan to get rid of, I'd love to start my own side thing where I just make things I love and maybe sell them, a few things crossed my mind like starting a website called...don't steal this "fuckingadorable.com"  didn't think it was kid appropriate, but I can't get it out of my head maybe someday.. a girl can dream right? Regardless, I usually only make things when people ask or the mood strikes, life just keeps on happening and I never really just have time to think about what me, myself and I want.

We should all fear evil men, but what we should fear most, is the indifference of good men. On a lighter note..have you smiled today? If you have not, Just DO IT! If you have..do it again!
