Cherry Blossoms

Ah Spring! Cherry blossoms, blue skies...

And then there was SNOW! Total whiteout from my window at work last Friday.
I wasn't thrilled. My co-workers immediately blamed me because I was admiring Ruth's Hat.
See how sophisticated and lovely hers is... reminded me of my cherry tree.

I had the pattern and Kauni yarn from Village Yarn & Tea and decided to make one too, since the snow returned.

Kamati had to help... by singing,

"I'm a model, you know what I mean, and I do my little turn on the Kauni (catwalk)... Mom! Take my picture!"

Sure enough! Now that I've got a new hat... the blue skies and sunshine are back! Hooray!

Am I too old for my hat?

Kauni yarn - EG & EL

Turbo Addis Needles - 3.25mm (US3)

Beads - opaque rainbow

Pirate Jack

Remember our social experiment for 2008? To see how long antenna Jack would stick around until someone stole him?

Look at him now...!

He lost one eye. Wooly got sick of seeing him, so he ripped off his hat and threw him away. I was disappointed that he was gone, so Wooly decided to retrieve him and make him into Pirate Jack! LOL!!!

Maybe I should have made a Pirate Hat instead, eh?

Nah, Wooly wouldn't wear it and I love my cherry blossom hat. I'm thinking of making more for Christmas for my friends who don't have 'hat hair' issues. :)

If you can't beat them, join them... you might get what you're wishing for in the end!

Happy Knitting! :)

I love your hat! It turned out beautiful and it looks great on you, so you can't be too old for it.

I'm really envious of your cherry blossoms. I guessed it was spring, but we got 6 inches of snow today, so my guess was wrong.
