Project Name: Cantaloupe Hat
Source: Lifestyle Top Down Hats, No Swatch Needed, by Charisa Martin-Cairn
Yarn Used: Noro Kureyon
Needle Size: 4!
Date Started: September 5, 2008
Date Completed: September 17, 2008
Notes: This experiment with Charisa’s pattern yielded something on the continuum between Rastafarian and circus clown. Guess which end of the spectrum I think it’s closest to? Heh. Definitely the hat I’m wearing when my primary aim in life is to embarrass my children. Yes, this will do the job nicely, thankyouverymuch. That and I also like to wear weird hats on very stressful days in the office. At least they allow people to question my sanity for a bit instead of their own. But, I kinda like it! Guess I’m weird, too.
Hat Model Naming Help Needed!
Meet my new hat model, Hattie. For lack of a better name, let’s call her that for now. I think she’s a cousin of the models on Charisa’s site, because I broke down finally and asked her which ones she bought. She kindly pointed me to a seller on eBay who had just the thing. She’s actual plastic, rather than styrofoam, which is a good thing since I have cats.
But ok, she needs a real name! Help me think of something befitting of her usual role, modeling hats of all sorts from the elegant felted ones I make to the totally weird ones I somehow come out with but love them just as much. Oh wow. I just thought of a doozie. But I’ll keep quiet and see if one of you comes up with it, too. Leave me your thoughts in the comments, k?
Ciao for now,
The Crazy Hat Lady
