Hats Off!

Boy do I love my Fun In The Sun hat!!! I followed Wendy's alterations to the pattern and I JUST LOVE IT! (fyi-starch was crucial since I made the brim bigger - hello, JLo!)
This Fun In The Sun hat pattern is from Interweave Crochet, Summer 2007

I almost got 3 done - BTW, I'm going to lift my quota, it's too stressful!

Here is Vertical Stripes from Itty-Bitty Hats. I had some trouble getting this to work, my panels never lined up quite right… I think it looks ok though.I did these two as well. Well, almost 2 - I can't believe I ran out of blue yarn! grrrrrrrrCan you see the star motif in the hat? It's a cute simple hat from an old Knitter's, Summer 2001 issue. The hat is part of a set called Untraditional Baby Set.

Well I gotta run, I'm going away this week for work and I'll be away from a computer until Friday. See you later and have a great week!

Super awesome hat! If my hair wasn't so curly and uncontrollable (and frizzy in a hat) I'd make one too! Aw, I'm jealous. Now I want straight hair, JLo or not :) BTW, thanks for the comment - perhaps I can do a little raffle for Raspberry Jam?

Jill,
Your vertical stripes hat looks beautiful and when it is on that baby you won't see any problems at all. You are wonderful to share your fantastic hat knitting on amazon. Thanks for taking the time to do that. Nothing is more flattering to see your patterns being successful. You made my day.
Love the sun hat! Too cute and you're too cute. Now you've even got Wendy writing you comments. You lucky girl!
