Not much to say about this one – I was in the mood for a quickie. It was Malabrigo March. I thought the hat was cute, so I decided to join a Buckethead KAL on Ravelry. It’s a great hat, if a little big; next time (there may be a next time: it’s a great pattern!), I might do something shocking and unexpected like try it on as I go. My husband says it’s fine… he says he likes everything I make, though, so that’s no help. I’m sure I will wear it, especially when I want to be all incognito (because that happens all the time. I’m a superspy, didn’t you know?) – this is the oversized hat to do it in!
The brim is fabulous (you believed me when I said I didn’t have much to say? Aren’t you gullible, Reader!) – it’s got this really cool construction so that it’s double-layered. Which means that the cast-on is a bit fiddly – but it’s worth it. Trust me. It also means that the brim has a really nice quality – not really stiff, but definitely not floppy, either – (Ah, the double entendres are all over the place!). The hat itself is so warm and cozy; if it wasn’t for the unfortunate timing of the project (late March in my parts isn’t particularly cold), I’m sure I would have worn it several times by now. No matter – it’s all ready to go for next winter!
2. What else is red? Ummm, meat cooked rare, or in my case, very rare (No, I’m not really implying that I am meat. This one is such a stretch, but points for effort in trying to work it in?). ‘Scuse the formatting from this point on – sometimes I really hate WordPress.
