2 for 2!

Messed up both cast on edges of my new socks! Its just the fancy cast on edge--(and 3 rows) but its off to the frog pond and a do over!

Here are some images of me in my G Class Star sun hat—one image in each of the solid colors (I've decided I really don't much like the lace in the multi color yarn—I wear the hat occasionally, but I think this hat and lace looks best in a solid or semi solid.. or maybe, in a yarn with long, slow color changes—but not in a yarn that changes colors ever 10 to 12 stitches.

I want some more images before I settle on one for an avatar.

But enough! I need to get back to work on my sock, and finish them, so I can make a blue hat, and a white hat, and maybe even a black one. I might even have to go to the dollar store and find another pop up hamper!

And Robyn--the brims are about 3 inches deep--they can be a bit deeper--but too deep, and the stiff wire in the brim makes the hat want to become airborn in a strong breeze--A broad brimmed hat can become an un-intended frisbee.

Yes ma'am, that is an all round nice looking hat. I can't wait to see the rest of them!

The hats look great. I'm a big fan of semi-solids. Solids can be a little boring, but variegated doesn't make my heart sing, either. Semi-solids rock!

It's such a pretty hat, Helen. You must be so proud!
