Those of you who have me on facebook know that I’ve been on a mad chase for beret style hats this year. But I don’t actually like to knit hats. I jokingly posted on facebook that I needed to find myself someone to trade knitting with, because I wanted to own “ALL THE HATS.” It was a joke. Seriously. I never imagined it would produce 40 comments and 3 wonderful trades. And a total of 7 hats. Amazing!
The first of “ALL THE HATS” has arrived. This one was knit by my friend Minnie, or dragonknitter. She will be receiving 2 pairs of socks in return for 4 hats. Isn’t that awesome? I could keep going, but I don’t want to exhaust the poor gal.
The first hat is “Brambles” from knitty.com. It was knit in cascade 220 in a light pink color that I used for Bug’s log cabin blanket. I had a lot left over. I will be kettle dyeing the other two skeins so that I don’t end up with 3 light pink hats, because that would just be a little insane.
Isn’t that some pretty knitting?
