Meow

I just finished knitting this black cat hat. It is so fun! I think it will be my October hat, to be worn all month. I have worn it running and in the car to school and to the park and...



I was planning to wear it on Halloween with just a little black tail tucked into my jeans, but Sydney really likes it and wants it for her own, so I may have to knit up another.



You, too can have this hat. It was quick to knit, and took about a half a skein of yarn. Here is the pattern. She also has a little red devil pattern for kids.

I didn't have the right length circular needles and the knitting supplies in our town are sadly lacking, so I just knit it back and forth instead of in the round and had to stitched up a seam in the back. I also didn't do the lower ear flaps, but I may put them on my next one. And either my head is too small or I knit too big, because in the picture the hat looks nice and tight, but it is a little loose on my noggin. Have fun knitting!

That's too cute... we went to DI this yr. and got all the outfits for the kids.. I just don't have the time to sew a costume for everyone!

So you've got snow already? WOW. Well, at least you didn't miss it before you left for Hawaii! :)

Cool hat! I think I gave Hannah a pair of circular knitting needles that would be a great size for a knit hat (if they are still around somewhere!)

Oh, I wish I could knit! I'm really tense and everything ends up being way too small. That hat is adorable!

That is darling! I was just thinking as I froze my ears off at a cross country meet on Sat, I really need a nice hat. Unfortunately, I'm not coordinated enough to knit!

I know this is way late but I love that hat!
But alas, I don't know how to knit.
So woe, woe is me.
