Grab Your Hat!

There's more snow in tonight/tomorrow's forecast.  5-10 inches.  So it's a good thing I've got everyone's head covered!  The only remnants remaining of last week's snow is broken tree branches (and trees.)  The kids have even worn shorts for a couple days since then.  Gosh, I love Colorado weather...always changing, always different!

Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods and for your sweet comments!

PS.  Oldest makes the pom-poms.  I really think she makes the best ones I've ever seen :)

WOW!! Lovely hats and they look so snug and warm. You are right about the pompoms. What's her secret?? x

I agree your DD makes the BEST pompoms :) And your knitting is always so lovely. I am sure these hats will be appreciated!

Great hats. Your family is so lucky and your DD does make great pompoms.

What fun hats! Looks like you got those heads covered just in time, too. ;)

Casa Pearl said...

Thanks for sharing your pattern choices. My needles need to get clacking for some men/boys and I was hard pressed to find a pattern that seemed manly enough. You are so productive!

The Sampler Girl said...

Lordy, you are so productive!!! Love all the hats. Great work.

Your DD makes great pompoms.

It's hard to make a pompom that is even and perfect, you're right. Great hats.

Lesleyanne said...

I guess there will be some warm heads in your family now. These look great. I'm always on the lookout for good hat patterns.

Carol said...

Looks like you'll be putting all of those lovely creations to good use with all that snow you're getting, Staci!

cpeezers said...

Wow! Awesome hats. I want to make scoops right now. Your daughter does make awesome pom poms! I think I've made 10 of those Fit for a Boyfriend Hats. I love them! Great hats. Thanks for sharing! I'm off to queue some up!

Melanie said...

Soooooooooooo awesome!! Especially the Scoops one and those pom-pom. I *LOVE* a good pom-pom! :)

Julie said...

Hats off to you and oldest, you both did a super job

doris said...

Great hats! I'll be looking at those patterns, because there's some lovely purple yarn in my stash that needs to take a turn on my needles.

Your oldest's pom-poms are wonderful. Has she tried tassels yet? I'll bet she'd be good at those also.

Brigitte said...

Great hats! One day after your post they were certainly highly appreciated as the snow came back.

Carol R said...

Love the hats Staci!

Sally said...

Love those hats Staci especially the first one.
