And great that it is such a bargain. Isn't it fun that you don't need to spend that much to get something desirable?
Thanks. Yeah, the Cat in the Hat isn't quite like that, but somehow it seemed like it belongs in a Dr. Seuss book. I'm now working on one in Green Tones for my grandson.

The red and white stripes were kind of like a song that gets stuck in my head and if I can hear the whole thing it sometimes goes away. LOL Now maybe I'm done with red and white striped stocking hats.

Oh that is sooo cool! I love the concept, and I think it was smart to knit the hats inexpensively! Plus, washable hats for kids is the only way to go! Great work!

Thank you so much, everyone! My granddaughter will get here red and white (I've been told it's a Where's Waldo hat but that doesn't really fit either) storybook hat today I think. I hope she likes it. It does need to be washed and dried still. If grandson doesn't like what I've started I'll frog it and make him something else. I can knit a lot or I can buy really nice yarn once or twice a year. I opt for quantity and work with the quality of yarn I can afford. I couldn't go months w/o a yarn fix! A true junkie will take whatever she/he can get I guess.
