My son's friend posted on facebook a crocheted toboggan her mom had made. So BoyChild says "hey Mom, I need one of those - in hunter orange!" Well, of course the recommended style/brand yarn did not come in hunter orange, so I just got some good old Redheart worsted weight yarn in 'pumpkin' and made him one. He liked it. The first day he wore it over a visor - the second day he wore it over a thin fleece toboggan.
I had plenty of yarn left so a made another one. Miss Gabbie-Lou-Who wore that one a time or two, but it was a little big for her. Her Pop (my BabyBrother) wanted one, so she gave him hers and I made her a more 'kid-sized' one (and used up the last little bit or orange thread.
Then BabyGurl saw all the hats and she wanted one "but not hunger orange". So she will be getting a blue one (made from the recommended LionHeart Homespun yarn). But I let Gabbie model it for her so I could send her a picture of it when it was done.
And here you have ... the hat gallery!!
