My hat is silly, it is just silly

Mayor Daley is forever saying, "It's just silly, silly, it's just silly"

I think my hat is silly. I loved knitting it. The pattern is clever. But on me, it is just silly. When my friend Les put it on, it looked
perfect on her. She has a naturally bigger skull. On my head, it looks like this. Silly just silly.

I used hacho yarn . Doubled the yarn for the rib, then switched to single strand , for the rest of the silly hat. Perhaps the Mayor would like it.

I talk more in the comments!

It looks fine in the photo! I've never felt I look good in hats. But it's so cold right now that I might just have to break down and wear one anyway! :)

A great idea--double the ribbing yarn, the part that goes around the ears, and then switch to single strand. I wish I had thought of that technique!! You are so smart and the hat is very pretty on you. I'd say it is a keeper!

Being a little silly at times makes life so much more interesting. Here's to silly!

I also think it looks cute. Let's see a full frontal!

I have all these hats I've knit over the years and wear one every day in this weather when I go out for my 3 mile walk. They tend to pop up on top and make me look truly dorky, but they do keep me warm. And then when I take them off, oh the hat hair!

It looks cute, just cute from the back. Is it really silly from the front? I have a head that not a single had in the world looks good on. That's why you'll hardly ever seen hats on my blog. There is one coming soon though - be prepared for just how awful I can look!!

no full frontal. THis is a family blog.....hahahahaha

You flatter me. I wanted it double thick the whole hat but my arm started to hurt.

Everyone else: Thanks! Glad Im not the only one who needs a hat trick!

I agree. The hat is nice to see. And... as you are wearing it, you're not always looking in a mirror, do you? LOL! Enjoy the hat instead!

I always say I never look good in hats, and when people say "You look great! What are you talking about?" I just laugh at them... but here anyway I'm going to say to you-- It doesn't look silly!! I think it looks great! Fun! :)
