The Boyfriend Hat


Here's the "boyfriend hat," my second Fake Isle Hat - as promised, modeled by moi..... however forgive the early morning, damp hair, bags under the eyes, no make up shot. Well, it's truth in advertising - this is what I'd look like on an early morning walk. And, I guess I AM wearing makeup - it's just yesterday's leftover makeup. Seriously - when I look like this, whether a hat makes me look like a dork should be the least of my worries!

Still - not too bad, hat wise - I may have to make one of these for myself, what do you think? Can I work it? At least for walking around the block on a cold morning?

This one is made from Noro Silk Garden, #249.... which I gotta say - makes a beautiful fabric. It's a little scratchy and rough when knitting it, but sure ends up nice. Gotta love a one-skein project. The "fake isle" part is some black worsted out of my stash - Brown Sheep I think.

I LOVE this pattern.

Tomorrow- another installment in the "Is There A Stylish Way to Keep My Head Warm" saga- I finished my Calorimetry. I'm thinking this is a keeper. And, I'm thinking my walking partner needs one for Christmas. Considering you can make it in one night - totally doable.

Get me - cranking out the FO's - I impress myself.

The hat looks great on you! Here's another option for the hat head thing... a knitted woven headband. http://www.kidsknits.com/free/woven_headband.htm

Dipsy Doodle had a picture of a beautiful one she made up and it looked great on her. For the life of me, I can't find that picture on her blog. I'll forward it after I find it.

I LOVE that hat! I think it's the colors I dig the most.

You don't look bad one bit! I think you look swell!

I wish I had a walking partner. :(

The hat looks great! I think you should make one for yourself too. I'm going to have to look into making one of them...

definitely like it a lot - no dork in the room! (I think it's the slightly squarer shape - straighter sides) I hope that makes sense ! :)
