Hats, Caps and Mittens!
The idea for the photograph was based on a story called, "Caps For Sale" by, Esphyr Slobodkina. In the story a group of clever monkeys take the merchants caps, wear them and then hang out high in a tree. Since I have no monkeys, I improvised and used the branches! Only 8 more to go!
My original goal was to have 18 knit hats for my 18 Kindergarten children for the holidays, then I changed my goal to Valentine's Day! However, I have yet to reach my goal! So I have 9 more hats to go! I hope to have them for my students before spring! I am using variety of patterns and styles. Some of the hats have a slight rolled edge, while others are ribbed. One of my favorite styles is the pink hat as it is Knit 2 ,Purl 2 for the entire hat. The pattern is simple and easy to fit.
Special thanks to my husband extraordinaire! He is my photographer!
