Hats from Novelty

Who couldn’t use a half dozen new hats?
Everyone needs new hats but I’m trying to keep it at a couple and not go completely overboard like I really want to. So far I’m holding at 2 but I do want at least one more. Or maybe 2 more.
First up was this:
Done in Acadia (Spunky Eclectic) thick and thin singles yarn. It’s thick, it’s warm, it’s um, it’s blues and purples. As soon as it’s done being a sample, it will belong to 9goingon20. I made another hat in the same pattern in colors I would surely like.
This is that yarn I posted about last week.
Mardi Gras (Southern Cross) thick and thin plied with beaded thread. In case you couldn’t tell this was the hat that I really liked, I had to take just one more photo:

When pulling the photos off the camera, I realized I had one more shot of the favored hat. Mickey likes the fireplace. Alot. This weekend we had a few big storms so we had a fire in the fireplace to keep us a little extra warm. I placed the hat in front of it to dry faster and regardless of the hat, the dog was going to lay on the hearth.

My latest project now are mittens using feathered yarn. I’m not ready to reveal it all but here is a teaser:

    Those hats are really cute! What a great idea for using novelty yarn. I can’t wait to see what you’re doing with the feathers! It sounds so absurd and wild! :)

    Cool. I love what you did with that Mardi Gras colorway. Ah. I begin to understand the feathers. If anyone I know can make that work, it’s definitely you!
