Kind of Odd Hat
So, last time I went to a yarn store with the nieces, Isabelle wanted a knot necklace, and Amelia really wanted this yarn. I do *totally* understand the joy of having a stash of gorgeous pettable yarn, but we eventually determined that maybe I should make something out of it. I made this hat, which is really cute in the picture, but the lines are kind of muddied by the yarn. Maybe it should have been a floppy hat, but I was worried I wouldn't have enough, and it was pretty close and I included leftovers from the loopy necklace (same yarn!).



So, I was going to say that I look really terrible when I model the hat, because when I tried it on, I did, so I was only going to show you the picture on the newel (which does better at showing the multicolorness anyway). But then when I was writing this, I noticed that the "really cute in the pictures" pictures had a lot of hair showing, and I wear my hair back normally. So I tried it with hair forward, and that was a great improvement. Look, I show you.

Oooh

Ah hah! Yes, the hair down & forward is definitely part of the look. And yes, that does now look good on you too. Great eye to notice that. :-)

And wow, that sure is crazy yarn. ;-)

I kind of forgot you have long hair. :)

Wow, yeah. That hat really does want long hair. I'd be tempted to make curliques to attach to the inside edges. :)

I am a little concerned now because Amelia has short hair, though I think it's long enough to show around the edges.

This is a fine excuse for an anime wig in a color that goes with the hat?
