It might be possible that I haven’t knitted a hat in over a year. That makes me a wee bit sad. What I have been doing all that time? Probably not a whole lot of knitting, actually. The last hat I made was the Green Circles in September 2009.
This hat, ironically, was supposed to be something similar to a hat I used to wear when I was a kid (and now does not fit). It was long and tubular, flopping down, with gathers at the top and a huge pompom. It did not end up that way at all. But I still enjoy wearing it.
The reason I say “ironically” in regards to Green Circles is because the hat I just finished today happens to be my second attempt at recreating that child’s hat! The newest one has been made out of Cosy’s Rainbow Chard handdyed yarn. I think I’ve gotten closer to the shape of the original hat and I added a pompom too. I’m not sure if that hat still exists someplace, maybe in my old bedroom. Perhaps I’ll try to recover it and then I’d have a better idea of it’s shape.
