Kyle's Kaps...

Ok, bad aliteration, but captioning has never been my strong suit.

Here are the caps that I'm mailing off to Kyle tomorrow. Please ignore the surly pout on the world's most uncooperative hat model, Clare. Clare is six years old, going on sullen teenager.

This is a simple roll brimmed cap made of Elann's version of Cascade Fixation, a cotton and elastic twisted yarn. The elastic makes it fit snugly, but comfortably and it was knit on dpns to eliminate any itchy seams.

The black watch cap was knit from Lion Brand MicroSpun in 2X2 rib on dpns. Again, it's most important design feature is that it is really soft for a bare scalp. Hopefully, neither hat will be too warm for indoor wear.

No photo, but I have been beetling along on Cinxia. I've completed another couple inches in the twisted stockingette. Geez, it is slow going.

I'm in the process of stitching together Elle's zippered cardigan. The weather turned on us, quickly and sharply this week, and suddenly, autumn is here! At least Clare's sweater is finished!

What a great yarn choice for a hat. Soft and stretchy. I know all about having a reluctant 6-year old for a model. If the gift is for them, the modelling isn't such a problem. That's great that you have no seams in the hat. That's one thing designers usually forget when designing patterns for those with alopecia.
