It’s All About the Hat

For every head a hat. ~ Lithuanian Proverb

Knitted hats are like warm hugs on chilly mornings. I love knitting hats especially as gifts. So far this year, I’ve cast on 13 hats. Nine are finished, and four are in process.


Last month, I wound yarn for Portland Rainchaser. I bought this kit on our excursion to Portland in June. The pattern is Rainchaser by Jenny F. The yarn is a special anniversary for Knit Purl and dyed by Canon Hand Dyes. It’s lace weight held double. Next is the newest Aviatrix hat. It’s Malabrigo Arroyo in Jupiter. I should be able to get two hats out of one skein, but I’m running dangerously low on yarn. The bottom row is a Malabrigo Wolfie in Rios Natural and Nimbus Gray. The Foxy set was so cute I decided to make a Wolfie set for a coworker and her daughter. Last is 2016 Christmas Hat the I in Malabrigo Rios Glazed Carrot and Cocoa. The pattern is Turn a Square by Jared Flood.

Update on other wips:

  • Earth & Sky: And we are still waiting.
  • Charity Malt: I’m on row 74 of the stockinette section.
  • Portland Bias Scarf: Skein one is down to 0.53 grams.
  • Frank in Pairs: I decided to make the first frank ochre section a bit longer before the first stripe.
  • Dewberry Dancer: I’m on row 18 of section one. It now has two pearl sections.


I think Burt’s trying to tell me he too needs a hat. Maybe this one?
