Inspirational Tourists

I didn't go on the little NYC tour that Dr. Mad Scientist took his mom and niece on.

But he brought me back a little souvenir that he probably didn't realize he was giving me.

If you can have accidental tourists, why not inspirational tourists?

On the pictures he took of their harbor cruise (part of the package--which I gotta say seemed REALLY expensive at the time, but they got to do a LOT of stuff so it was totally worth it), I notice a reoccuring theme.





Do you see it? Check out all the cool hats everyone is wearing. I think my fave is the simple cabled hat in the first picture.

Now I only wish I could pull off a nice hat or floppy beret.

I have to say though, the best knit hat photo he brought back was this one:


Chunky sporting his hat I made him steering the water taxi!!

I was going to guess, "Things that are tall". I should probably put on my glasses when I'm on the computer.

LOL - before I scrolled past the first picture, my immediate thought was "Ooh! Great hat! Wonder if I could figure out that cable..."

Well I first thought it was the skyline....But then I gave it another thought and knew it had to be the hats! Chunky isn't rolling his eyes in that picture either....Oh! wait you can't see his eyes! Love, Mom

ok, I've made myself over 5 handknit hats for myself that I have YET to wear but kids can totally pull it off. THIS year I say...let's take the risk - WEAR IT! Wear a handknit knit!

Yep hats. I knew it. The first hat is the best, and you can make a hat like any of those, because you have mad knitting skilz!
