FO: My second hat
Okay, so I'm addicted to making hats!

After I made DH's last silly hat (See "cylinder hat" below), my 4-year-old son wanted a pointy hat with stripes and something hanging off the top, so this is what he got. I found a pattern for a very looooong pointy hat with a tassle, but I modified the pattern so it wasn't so long since that one was for an adult and it wouldn't have been very realistic for my DS to wear it.

The yarn is really crappy and scratchy and stiff, but the colors are really cute. We don't have a yarn shop here and I've never even touched real yarn other than what I can find at walmart, and this was the only self-striping yarn they had. Someday I dream of knitting with really nice yarn....lol

Introducing my DS, Jack, and his new pointy, stripey hat: hee!






Wasn't he being a good little model?

That is so cute! Your son makes a good model.

Can you buy yarn online?

I can buy yarn online.....BUT..........I'm SO overwhelmed because I don't know what to choose, have NO idea what it feels like, and it all seems sooooooooooo expensive. I'm willing to pay more for quality yarn, but I have no idea what I'm getting, and it seems like there are thousands of different yarns. I think I forgot to mention, I'm a very new knitter. Like, I went from making a scarf, right to that silly cylinder hat, to this hat here....This is only my third project total. I still don't even know if I'm knitting right, much less how to pick out yarn. lol I'm dying to teach myself how to knit some socks, but I'm so overwhelmed after googling all the sock yarns that I gave up because I have no idea what yarn to order and Walmart doesn't have anything that feels like it would work.

aww what a cutie and the hat looks great!!

It can be overwhelming with all the yarn out there...Knit Picks is a great place to start...the yarns are priced very well and they have great sock yarns too...
