Lakers hat

This hat was made specifically for a student at Grand Valley State University, in Michigan, but in the great lakes area we are all lakers. You can’t hardly chuck a rock in Michigan without it landing in some body of water. Though right now the water is starting to freeze over. And wherever there isn’t a standing body of water is covered in snow.

This was a self designed project, and by designed I mean I charted out the color work and more or less made everything else up as I went along.

I am not sure if anyone else has this problem, but I certainly have a difficult time finishing pieces meant for myself. This is especially true now that Christmas is quickly approaching. A scarf for grandma, a stocking for boyfriend, a headband for a sister.

As much as I love being able to give knit gifts, I wish I had more hats, sweaters and blankets!
