Hats off to you and Happy Thanksgiving

Sonoma County Yarn Shop
Good Morning, I hope you had a great weekend.  This year marks the first year we are hosting Thanksgiving at our home. For us, the Thanksgiving holiday has always been a time to celebrate friendship.  Our house guests are arriving.  We cook together and have a great time every year.  As the day approaches, there is food to be prepared, and cribbage to be played.  I have been knitting frantically but finally, the hats are done.  Here they are for your perusal.  Can you believe it?They are finished.  It took me until midnight on Saturday, but the ends are all wound in and they are done!
Below are the details for anyone who is interested.  Unless otherwise stated the hats took less than one ball of yarn.  For the most part, I just look at the gauge on a ball band and estimate my stitch count and I’m off and running!  i go for an inch or in ribbing and then switched to stockinette the remainder. i did get bored and do some textured ones.  For a few hats I followed a pattern.  Those are linked below.
I love knitting hats because you get to test drive yarn and stitch patterns, but you have something useful when it is completed.  My husband wears hats often because his head gets cold and he has accumulated quite a collection.  I have always loved playing with cables and color on a small scale.  This year all our guests will receive a hat to take home with them. Jon our usual host chose the color scheme when he requested a purple hat this year.

So stop by the store, grab a skein and get to knitting.  You have plenty of time to knit or crochet up a hat.  Have fun, try a new stitch or just play with color.
Until next time Happy Holidays to your family from ours.  Be safe and happy knitting!
