This is what we call "emergency hat." I wore my felted #koolhaashat on Monday, and it was a clear no-go ????????????. So I immediately cast on a new emergency hat: #fuegohat by Justyna L. @letesknits. The yarn is of course @berrocodesign Vintage because I have a metric ton in my stash. I chose this pattern because I like it, and it has maximum Pom-Pom-ability ????. I really want a hat with a giant pom pom this season!
(Hand for scale.) I've knit 3 #koolhaashat: one was lost, one was too shallow to wear comfortably, and this is the third. Yesterday night while folding laundry, I noticed something had bled pink/red all over a few items; thankfully, a fitted sheet and a hand towel took up most of the dye. I was puzzled, since no new items were in the wash, until I uncovered this little guy amidst the items. The yarn is Rowan silky tweed, neither machine washable, nor dryable. The hat can still squeeze on my head, barely, but is probably better suited for my son (who is not at all into hats, go figure ????). This was my favorite hat, in a perfect color matching my jacket (which is how it ended up in the wash in the first place, I think it had been tucked into the jacket sleeve, and the jacket got washed). I need to raid my stash and knit another hat, pronto!
