Dungeness Hat

I am going to admit there were stages of happiness with this hat. It is a test-knit, so regardless it was going to be finished, but that ended up being a good thing. When I saw the test-knit, I love the look of it and offered to be a tester. . . however, as I knitted, I just thought it looked funny and I would never wear it . . . I finished it and plopped it on my head to see if it even fit and I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. Now its blocked and I am still in love with it and am so glad that I had to finish it, otherwise, I might not have and would not have this spiffy hat. I loved it so much, I making stripey gloves to match it for this fall/winter.

P.S. - I know you probably cannot tell, but since I started trying to loose weight last year, I have lost 33lbs and 15 of that has been since I have been eating Paleo! :) I am quite happy with that.


  1. It's adorably cute!! I love the colors.

    Congrats on your weightloss. One of my local friends also went Paleo and while she had no weight to lose, her skin is radiant and her muscle tone is even more impressive than before.

  2. Congratulations on the loss. The hat isvery crunchy looking!

  3. It is funny how things can look so different on and off the needles. Glad you like the new hat, and congratulations on the weight loss!
