My camera broke awhile back and my phone kinda sucks for pictures (I'm sorry Steve Jobs, but it's true). So my friends Megan & Jared met me in Saugatuck and we took a bunch o' pics. We had a great time! Here is the 1st project from the batch:
The Nautilus Hat--Wendified
(like modified, get it?)
I made this hat TWO summers ago! I made it on a trip to California during the summer. I was sweatily knitting away in the car outside the post office when this tough guy drove in on a big ole' motorcycle. "Isn't it too hot ta' be workin' with wool?" he asked. It's never too hot for wool. The hat was just too big. I loved it (especially since it was the 1st hat I'd made), but wanted to get real use out of it instead of its current job: blindfold. This past fall I took it to a chili cook-off in Baldwin and added the black around the bottom and the flower. It has become one of my favorite hats, now.
(BTW-please ignore the orange scarf, I forgot I had it on.)
