Pattern: Kat by Kim Hargreaves (published in the book "Precious")
Yarn: Patons Angora Bamboo in 90010 Sand
Notes/Mods: Despite quite a few boo-boos in my knitting, I knit this one strictly as written.
I love this hat!
Right from the get-go I had the idea to add a fur pom pom. Yup, fur. The controversial fashion material I once claimed was "okay, but kind of icky" and now find riding on my head on a regular basis.
While I've dodged a few trendy fashion bullets (harem pants, "boyfriend" jeans, peep-toe boots), I am not immune to trends. Case in point: I am currently wearing "jeggings". Falling hard for the fur trend, I didn't stop with pom-poms.
Check out the new specs too!I picked up this vintage hat/hood for $10 and I love it. The first time I wore it I expected protesters to throw red paint at me when I left my house. As it turns out, no one is waiting outside my door paparatzi-style to critique what I'm wearing each day. Hunh!? In fact, I've had a lot of compliments on this furry little number. I especially love this comparison:
I'd guess I'd rather wear fur than go naked (I'll leave the nudity to the models). Don't throw red paint at my blog!
