An Alpaca Hat for Zach


 Made Zach a Rowan hat with mistakes.
Ripped it out because he wore it with mistakes and it drove ME crazy.
Reknit the hat in Rowan with a perfect crown.
Zach prefers slouch hats. 
Gave that one to Fireman. 

Went to My LYS Saturday.
7 photo texts later Zach and I agree on a yarn color. 

Green.
Rowan Alpaca. 
SO SO warm. 

Knit Zach another hat. 
Good to go!

I love a slouchy hat! My husband prefers a watch cap style. I dunno what The Kid likes, something he won't lose I suppose! Great job Kathy! I bet that Alpaca is super soft!

It's not easy knitting for the menfolk. They know what they like and that's that. Since I started a cardi for Son, The Mister has been making noises about me making him a sweater next. Arghhh.....

Great hat, great model! A friend and I were talking about the same thing in class yesterday - how much others enjoy our projects and never even notice the mistakes that we can't NOT see and make us crazy! Must be universal. 😋

I love slouch hats and hope they never go out of style!

Good work on the hat! Mistakes bug me, too, but in our quilt group the saying is, "If you can't see it from 30 feet on a galloping horse, it's fine!" Great pumpkin, too.
