Update time from the crazy hat lady

 As you see the winter months were filled with hat making and I've happily given most away already. the green monster is for a sweet young fella who touched my heart last year but we've not had the chance to make contact to deliver it yet. (This hat has now gone off to warm the sweet young mans head, his mom picked it up and sent me a photo of him wearing it and giving me the thumbs up, which warmed my heart greatly)

 This one was made for our grandson, I think I will make myself one next winter.

 This one was crocheted for a dear friend of mine. The fun part was I gave her the bag of hats to choose which one she wanted and she chose the one I had made special for her, how cool is that...

and this one went to her four year old granddaughter, thank goodness I had a small hat that she liked.

This one I scooped for me.

 The one and only Beaver hat I will ever make was for our grandson. Apparently the teeth get in the way of seeing, but it is cute, even if he has to wear it sideways to see where he is going.

This one my daughter fell in love with but as it was a bit small in height I added more rows till it fit right. Luckily I had just enough wool left to do so.

Below are hats I made for my sweet sister, you can see I like variety in materials as well as accent flowers.
Above and below is a reversible hat.

 Also reversible. I forgot to photograph the reverse, but it has the light blue on the inside of the brim. I made the flower as a brooch so it could be taken off when the hat is washed.

This one is not reversible. The underside brim is the same material as the flower. The flower in stitched on through the button.

As one may rightly surmise that I don't make two of a kind, I like to mix up colors and fabrics just to see what will be, and so far those who have received them are delighted, which in turn delights me. I have made a few more, but oops forgot to photograph them before they were given away, oh well.
