knitting hats

Okay, so I love knitting hats. Well these two at least! The blue hat is called Rosebud, and it was a fun knit. The chunky cable is cute and it fits really well.  Apparently it runs large, so I ended up making a few modifications.  You can read about it over here on Ravelry.  This was a Christmas gift, but I think I'd like to make another slouchier version for myself.

This orange hat was my first, and it was requested by my husband.  He doesn't often ask for specific handmade items, so of course I had to make it for him.  He wanted a simple orange hat for hunting.  The color ended up not being bright enough to actually wear while hunting, but he loves it and wears it all the time.  Eli likes to steal it and wear it too.  Ravelled here.

I have a couple projects on the needles right now, but I have some lovely Plucky Knitter yarn waiting to become this pretty hat.  Can't wait!

Happy weekend!
