4 of 6

First up, thanks for your comments on the RH Tulip sweater.

I guess I'm feeling bad, YYB's wife is a nice girl, and I think we all have certainly have met those people that don't appreciate the handknit I should be nicer. I think that recycled name thing just hit me and my hormonal self wrong.

But onward and upward!

Hat number 4 for the B6 Clan is done! The B6 Clan was founded by my Younger Brother (older than my Younger Younger Brother) and his wife.

Hat number 4 is for the eldest B6 kid. I believe he's a low-number teenager. (Mrs. B6 will have to back me up/call me out on this.) So I had to go with something a teenaged dude might like.

I'm hoping he has the same dorky style I have. Because this is one cool hat.


Yes, I realize it's a white hat and on a very white person, it looks, well, pretty damn lame.

But Eldest B6 inherited his mom's complexion which is more San Diegian Sunny than Alaskan Pasty White.

But what makes this hat "cool?"

It folds down to this:


Ha ha! Now that will be warm in Colorado!!!

The details:

Pattern: Jackyll & Hide from Fall Knitty 2007.

Yarn: Vanna's Choice in white.

Needles: US 7

Notes: I loved making this. It was relatively quick--although it longer than the other hats I'm making for the B6 Clan as it's basically a ski mask. And I don't care what people say about Vanna's Choice. I love that crap! Cheap, soft, and washable. It will never replace my TLC Cotton Plus as Best Cheap Yarn Ever, but it's certainly in the top 10.

Only two more hats to go!

Awesome. I totally need one for work. And I'm not (cough) that far (cough, cough) from teenagerhood, if you skewer the math, at least, and therefore pronounce it totally teenage-appropriate.
