Big head...big hats

I am an accessories junkie. I love to add hats, scarves, or necklaces to my outfits. My grandmommy was an accessories junkie so I "get it honest." There is just one problem with my love affair with accessories...I have a big head. I have big hair. I love hats, but constantly have troubles finding hats to fit my head. They are usually just a tad too tight and I want to scream every time I see a hat label that says one size fits most. My husband is probably sick of my hat sizing complaints that he hears every time I take him shopping and try on a few hats. When I traveled to Florida recently I had a stroke of good shopping luck. I found a big white beach hat and two fedoras. Three hats! My summer hat looks are I need to get my winter hats settled. I found this great chunky knit beanie pattern from while knitting web surfing one night.
I used some more of my Spud and Chloe yarn I purchased at the Black Mountain yarn shop. Isn't this a fabulous color? I love how it turned out. It is simple and cute. A perfect hat to throw on when I go out on cold weekends this fall and winter.

tried to take a self portrait...notice the busy little hands

my new hat did not stay on my head long...
