My New Hat

So, lately I've had a lot of time for making things. I just had my knee operated on & can't get around. Yesterday, I decided to make a hat. I don't have a winter hat & I've seen all the cozy, fun ones about, so I thought, why not try? This one is pretty simple, just one piece, gathered at the top & a little border around the bottom.  I didn't use a pattern, just made it up as I went. This one is organic cotton in "Macadamia," kind of a warm, dark off white or very light beige.  I love the softness & it seems like it'll be plenty warm. The color is perfect for just about any outfit. I think I'll add some beads to the tie (Here it's simply tied with a bow.) If I make another (& I think I will) I'll make it just a little 'taller' & slightly bigger. It's just a little snug, though it'll probably stretch & I don't want to end up with it being too big...





What about you? Have you made anything new, recently?

That is a very cool hat I wish I could knit hats. I can do scarves because you are just knitting continuously nothing fancy involved

I hope your knee heels and you are up and about soon. I make lots and lots of hats, scarves, beanies, and whatever .... I cant read patterns and do them out of my head and then I keep them for a rainy day - you never know when a gift is needed :)

That's so cute, makes me wish I knew how to knit! But alas, I never had the patience to learn!
