i'm back to this website after a long time of absence. truth is i've been really uber depressed and havn't wanted to do anything at all, even be crafty. truly, i was lost. until recently i just decided to pick up those trusty knitting needles and knit my busted lil heart out... yah ANWAY... i knit a couple scarfs and some other things, but i'll post them later.. cuz this puppy, i'm really proud of...

here's the picture from the pattern...

i got the pattern off this website http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/patterns.htm it has a bunch of lovely little hat patterns, it is just a lovely page of loveliness actually.

they call it the Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap, the pattern is lengthy but i managed to tackle it only ripping it out three times! yah... but it was for my halloween costume so i was determined to finish it. and i did.

it's knit mostly in the knit/purl fashion with some increasing/decreasing and some wrapping/turning(this is what i found tricky at first but i got it pretty well figuired by my third attempt)an ambitious beginer or intermediate knitter should be able to handle this pattern pretty easily once you get going. i'll be glad to help anyone that wants to make this hat and has questions... http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt07.htm

it took two skeins of yarn, i chose a soft wooly chocolate brown... i'm in love with it, i have to figuire out what else to wear it with beside my halloween costume. i also want to knit another one in some different color... green maybe.

anyway... here's a picture of me from halloween in my hat. i was a gun moll.

*bang bang*

Wow, your costume is amazing!  I would just dress like that all the time!  Your makeup, the eyes and lip shape, look just like a photo of Clara Bow or something.  Well done  Grin

Thanks, too, for sharing this pattern.  I'd been wanting something this shape, but couldn't really find it.  I'm a beginning knitter, but I might give it a try anyway.

Love it - love it!  All I need is another project I'm dying to make.   Tongue

wow, you're beautiful in your halloween costume!  you did a great job on the makeup and the hat is perfect!

just wondering, is it fairly tight to your head or kind of loose?  and how comfortable is it?

I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling down, but that hat and halloween costume are fabulous!  Hope that your knitting continues to cheer you up!

Wonderful hat and amazing costume. I'm sure you were belle of the ball in that outfit.

And I'm sorry to hear you were blue, but knitting is a great form of mediation, so you just go right ahead and knit your blues away Sweetie! We are rooting for you!
