Why make hats in August?
I just completed 3 blogs on hats. In August, the hottest month of the year. Why would I blog about hats? Here’s 3 reasons.
Hats are popular crafts. They’re quick and easy, and not big projects like blankets and afghans. They don’t fill your lap up and you can carry them around easily. The looms are larger than I like, but in a canvas bag they work. Hats are great for gifts, for charity, and for your own use.
Fall is coming – and so is the holiday season. Hat’s will be useful then. Actually, I’ve been seeing them already as I go around town. I want to make some simple hat and scarf sets to leave around for people who find they need them. Also, I want to make a few sets for me. Last year was a big hat gift season for me so I might not make too many for holiday presents. But they are nice to have on hand.
I wanted to give some basic information on how to cast on. Hats were a great way to do that. I showed how to do 3 cast on stitches which will hopefully be useful.
Now I’ve done with hats. Next, I want to do a series on small projects for children. Stay tuned.
