Prepare yourselves for hats.

Let's just face the facts here.

You are going to be seeing a lot of hats.

They're easy to knit...yet you can make them complicated...a great way to use up yarn, or try out a new yarn...most people wear them...they knit up fairly quickly...and of course, they make a great gift.

So, I present to you...a couple of koolhaas!

The pink is Rowan cashsoft and the purple is Zara. So far, so good.

Now, more hats.
I was reading the lastest issue of one of my favourite magazines and came across a knit hat...which I loved....and which looked really familiar.

Here's a little split screen of the magazine feature and the pattern I found (vogue knitting winter 05/06)...

Hmmmm.

You could buy the brown hat for a mere $250....or how about knitting that in one night with some great chunky yarn?

We both know the answer.

FYI the labels for sweaters I ordered from here. I don't remember why I choose this place...the font...the size of the label...the price...whatever the reason, they were the best for what I needed. You don't break the bank, and they are a great touch on a finished knit!

Oh...one last thing...
I was in Walmart yesterday...and they were playing jingle bells.
The Christmas decorations are all out.
There was frost on the grass this morning.
Let's face the facts...it is officially hat wearing weather.

I'm sorry, but what is a Koolhaas, other than a talented Dutch architect?

I love the koolhaas (from the Interweave Knits holiday issue), it's definitely in my queue.

I love to knit hats too. I wanted to le you know Cathy Carron's book Hip Knit Hats is a winner, at least 20 hats in there that I would knit (I'm working my way through the book) All are in chunky/bulky yarns and you can knit them in a night.

Are you enjoying the KHaas pattern?

Hats are a great thing. I'm watching the snow fall right now. None of it is staying yet, but it will and soon.

Love your hats and so funny that they want $250.00 for a hat that would take even a slowpoke like me a day to knit.

Walmart here had a Christmas section in the back by the crafts up last month. Right after Canadian Thanksgiving in October.
