Anyway, I'm not sure Rowan even wants a hat, but opening a present on Christmas Day, trying to wrestle it on to your noggin and having to give up because, just... no. Well, that's no fun for anyone.
And after the great success with the striped sweater I know that he does actually appreciate and enjoy receiving hand knits. Though, and this may be my downfall, there was a great deal of consultation around the sweater. This hat? I'm just springing it on him.
|This hat is actually rather greener than this.|
Confession time: I bought yarn for this. No, more than that. I bought acrylic for this. I know. I know. But hear me out -- this is a hat for a 14 year old dude. I picked up some Lion Brand Heartland at the Hancocks down the way (and okay, I might also have gotten some Bernat Satin in Navy too. I needed options didn't I?)
