The groundhog may not have seen his shadow on Feb. 2 (indicating an early spring), but I missed three days of work last week because of snow! To me, that means there’s still time to make hats and wear them this winter…
Have you seen the three newest and cutest Leisure Arts knit/crochet hat books?
Got stars in your eyes, teenagers in your house, or little kids with cold ears? My teenage daughters really like the hats the celebrities are wearing these days—those casual-yet-confident slouchy beanies worn by lots of big movie, television, and rock stars when they’re out and about. You can knit or crochet your own with these 14 patterns by Lisa Gentry (7 to crochet in one book and 7 to knit in the other. Too fun!
You gotta love this collection of crocheted headgear from designer Drew Emborsky, also known as The Crochet Dude, famous for his wildly popular blog, magazine features, books, and television appearances. His six designs—each perfect for the woman who loves original style.
I can’t wait to get started on my last minute winter hats, and it’s never to soon to start stitching up a few extra hats for charity!
