Wee Hats, Part 1 (Not so Wee)
Published On: August 30, 2012

I’ve learned something.  Five year olds have heads that are more or less the same size as adult humans.  At least some five year olds do.  My secret plan is to go for super stretchy and thus forgiving as to size (and also hopefully thus somewhat long lasting).

This is Malabrigo Worsted in Emerald and Frank Ochre.  The colors were somewhat dictated by what was in the stash at the moment.  It was late, I needed a cast on fix right then, (there would be none of this leaving the house and procuring yarn or ordering and waiting for the mail nonsense) so I had to use what I had.  I would never have put the colors together under normal circumstances, but I’m thinking I actually sort of love it.   Maybe sort of a lot.  It could be further proof that Malabrigo can do no wrong when it comes to color.  The sprocket in question for this hat has giant blue eyes, and this should suit just fine.

And yes, I know the design doesn’t show up much yet, but my swatch assures me it will be nifty once I have a few more rows in.  The swatch has also helped me figure out that this will be super stretchy and super duper lofty and warm.  More updates (and likely a display opportunity for one of the Quentins) in a day or two.
