Please don't get bored yet.

So at the risk of boring you with two boring hats here goes.....I am still on my crusade to root out all random skeins of yarn and anything not big enough for a sweater or tagged for another project is fair game. I already made some mitts out of the yarn below and had just enough for a hat. My son was not very willing to participate in this photo shoot.

We are having one of those fabulous "phases" my son doesn't want to do anything without me firmly by his side. Unfortunately the reverse is also taking pictures without him right by my side or preferably holding him. Ah the joys of toddler hood :)

Thankfully the hat is a 1x1 rib and quite stretchy so my daughter subbed in.

I got our old pop tent out for the kids to play in outback in the hopes to distract him enough to give me a moment to myself.

It worked just long enough for me to get in a few photos of this stripe hat I whipped up with some scraps. I'm sorry but I just made these on the fly with no pattern to share and I don't have the faintest idea what yarn I used.

I hope your week is going well.

the pics are cute - flybys. And not boring. Good use of extra skeins!

Not boring at all - very cute hats! I need to find some projects for all the random skeins of yarn I have lurking around my house too.

I have a bunch of yarn that really needs to be loved in some way or another, but it isn't enough for one project. I love this idea.

I've been thinking about working on some hats because the big yellow sweater I'm knitting is taking one hundred years. I love the blue stripe hat! Great colors! I used to try to distract the children the same way, so I could knit, sew, read and journal! I love tents - I know that would have distracted ME! Thanks for a happy post!

Your hats are adorable ~ and using such bright fun colors will make them favorites to wear next Fall!
