It’s become a bit of a tradition that I make Chris a new hat each Christmas. Usually it is one that either does not fit or is not his style. His fave is still the hot head hat I made him a month or two after I started knitting. I’ve been determined to overshadow that wonky hat with it’s terrible seam. This year I decided to modify Tiennie’s handsome Norwegian Earflap Hat into a double layer beanie, totally inspired by Knitting Elephant’s version.
When I first cast off it was very much like a bucket hat. It was rather fetching on me but I knew it would look pretty stupid on him. I cut the joining round and ripped back a few rows and worked them with a smaller needle.
I don’t know why I never thought to make him a double layer hat before. This is the guy who wears a toque til the end of May.
He is stern when he wears the navy.
With all the walking and photographing yesterday I completely forgot about this:
This, my friends, has been sitting in my underwear drawer for ten years and through six moves. It is a letter I wrote to myself at a retreat in my last year (grade 13 when there was such a thing) of high school. It is not as painfully earnest as I had thought.
I don’t ever remember wanting to be a DJ and it kills me that I called it “on air radio personality”. I guess I wasn’t thinking in realistic terms or I wouldn’t have projected myself as an actress, married to a celebrity, living in New York. Too funny.
