Hats are on the horizon here still. Hats were not part of my scheduled knitting plans - I have sweaters a-plenty I plan to knit. But the leftover Noro was good enough reason to knit the Ziggley Zag hat. Then I caught sight of these little guys on ravelry.
Another free pattern - designers are so generous aren't they? I had seen a young fellow wearing one of these hats the day I attended the Woodstock Fleece Festival. Wearing the hat and grinning from ear to ear, I should add. When I spotted the free pattern I wondered if I could elicit that same grin from my Grand Kids. It is worth a try.
First, though I had to educate myself a bit. What the heck is a Minion? To truly appreciate them, I suspect you need to be of a certain age - and certainly not my age - but you can look here to see them.
Hat number one is ready for the black stripe.
These hats are fun to knit - and the decorating should be super fun. Once I have two Minion Hats complete, then I will return to my sweater knitting.
