I started a fun fur hat Back In The Day , when all of my hats were knit flat and seamed up the back... And then I made the wise realization that I don't need a bright red fuzzy hat in my life. I already have bright red fuzzy hair. So I halted production on this lovely...
But then the Red Fuzzy was given new hope by a collection effort by Mini of Minestrone Soup (http://minisoup.blogspot.com/) for the children's cancer ward of her local hospital. They want fuzzy hats, and I want to give them one!!
So the Red Fuzzy came back out this morning, and after about 2 hours of cheerful knitting, the hat is done!
It's big (why do all of my hats come out SO BIG?!), but there are probably some kids with big heads. I am going to run some elastic around the edge to help hold it on, just in case.
I really like it, but don't worry, friends, I'll not be sporting a Fuzzy of my own any time soon. I have, in fact, outgrown my impulse to look insane... though I do have relapses once in a while.
