Hats off!!!

These are most of the hats that I've been churning out in the past few weeks.  Most use the Reynolds Lopi.   The small ones are going to be gifts for my newest grand neice who is due next month.  The purple and green striped one is the "umbilical cord" hat from the Stitch N Bitch book, and the furry blue one was just my own "let's see what happens when I do this" design.  A couple will be just for me, and I will send a couple of them for the Dulaan project.  I think the green one in the back might be what Mel used for his Dulaan hat and I agree, it does look like ass on it's own.  I like the way the blue one on top almost looks like faded denim.

 I'm going to give up the hat making since spring is here, and I've started working on a sweater for the hubby, that hopefully will be done in time for his birthday in June.  I'll take a picture of that when I get far enough along with it and have something worth taking a picture of.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share.  Enjoy!!!

 Aaron, Wow - you've been a busy little knitter this winter!  I love all these hats, especially the blue one in the background.  The white tweed-looking one to the right of it interests me; is it felted?  The wee purple one for your niece is so cute, too.  With all this practice you're ready to knit a jersey! Cheers,  Jesse

Great hats!  And so many of them, too.  I'm sure you know a lot about hat making now.  The bottom one is interesting--I can't tell from the photo what style it is.  Good luck starting the sweater!

Great job with the hats.  What a wonderful way to explore the creative process.  Sometimes when I want to try a new technique I will knit a hat.  Easier to manage.   I know what you mean about switching to another project type after awhile.  I will binge on one kind of project before switching to another.  Warm weather usually means sock knitting as easy to transport and not taking up much space on the lap.  Good luck with the jersey.  It is a terrific gift to give to someone you know is going to appreciate it.
