For Christmas I decided to knit Ms. A a hat. I needed something to do in the evening and this seemed like a good idea. I started it four days before Christmas but it was a quick enough hat that I finished it the next day. It comes from this pattern. I didn’t add the jewels in the eyes or on the nose as I figured they would just come off. She loved it and wears it around the house and in the snow.
Since I finished that one so quickly I decided to make Mr. J a beard hat. These are trendy now. I knitted a hat first and then the beard as another piece. Originally I connected them to the hat with buttons but it didn’t fit right no matter where I put them. I sewed it on and it worked much better for him. I can’t find the pattern I used for this one though. It was hard to find one that I liked too.
When I finished this hat Rich was asleep. I put it on and woke him up. He was quite startled and said not to wear it anymore LOL.
Ms. A wanted to pose with Mr. J.
