Pattern: Blizzard-A Hat Inspired by Bones by Cambria Washington
Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky in Pewter
Needles: US 8 and 10.5
I belong to the Bones group on Ravlery, where this hat pattern was born and raised because of an episode in which Booth and Bones get stuck in an elevator and Bones is wearing this amazing hat. I love it! I was very prematurely upset earlier this week because it was huge while it was still damp. I had no idea what a difference a little bit of moisture makes in the size of a wool hat! It fits pretty well now. It keeps sliding off my head because the pom pom is really heavy (I may have gotten a little carried away) and I got my hair cut yesterday. My stylist straightens and thins my poofy mane, so I don't have the typical volume to fill out the hat. It'll fit perfectly after I wash my hair. :)
John took gorgeous photos of me and my hat! I'll give him most of the credit and my hair the rest. Oh, if only I had the time and patience to straighten it....I'll try it more this summer. I think I could do more fun stuff with it straight.
Enough about my hair! I'm addicted to something only a nerdy Classicist desperate for a means of procrastination could become addicted to: Grepolis. It's totally amazing and I'm trying desperately to build a wall so I can feel safe enough to leave my city for a while without getting attacked. I'm such a nerd. Tell me one of your nerdy addictions?
