Here go Nellie. I loved doing this hat love the yarn color. I did a ear flap hat with a matching scarf as you can see. I was thinking about doing a little pom pom at the top but, ran out of yarn but, shoot it still looks nice.:) Nellie not acting like it she was upset that she couldn't have any candy lol.

Ok now here go my very best project in the hat category. Ok I was practing over and over on how to do a newsboy cap starting with gauge and just going with the flow of things. I came across a couple of patterns on newsboy caps but, didn't like the patterns was to overwhelming if you ask me lol.

So if you look at this picture below to your right was my first try at it with a smaller hook and with less stitches in my circle. To the left a larger hook and more stitches in my cirle.

To the Right: Hook: I
To the Left: Hook: M

Yarn: Red Heart, Black
Stitches: SC, HDC, SL



Ok this isn't in the hat category but, here is a quick update on my daughter Nesa's shroat I finished it Thursday and she wore it to school on Friday.

I love the winged hat as I usually do not like to wear hats, but that would be just right and not bother my ears at all. Just love it. Love the matching scarf also.
