New Hats for Sale

Standard

I’ve been using up small bits of yarn in colors that don’t fit the schemes I have in mind for infinity scarves. In a few days, I made seven hats.

Sometimes I get so excited about making hats, I don’t want to do anything else. Who needs to sleep, cook, eat, clean? Not me! The most important thing in my life is making hats!

Other times, I don’t even want to think about yarn, much less making a hat.

I can’t pinpoint any reasons for why I feel one way or another. Sometimes that hat benders are brief, and sometimes they last for weeks.

In any case, I’ve been making hats, and they’re all for sale. Each one costs $13, including shipping costs.

I know it’s September, and most folks won’t need a warm hat for a couple of months. But as fans of Game of Thrones are reminded, winter is coming. Now is a good time to prepare. Your head will thank you.

This large hat has a finished edge. In this photo, the edge is folded up. The main color of this had is purple, with some yellow, but the purple variegated yarn has some green in it too, so it won't quite make for the straight up LSU fan.

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I've never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again. I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist. Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it. I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk. This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

  1. Beautiful hats ! Poor Esmeralda, has she been a victim of domestic violence ? Her face may require some plastic surgery thou… LOL.

    • I met Esmerelda in Las Vegas. She does not speak about her past, and I don’t press her. She loves herself just the way she is and does not feel the need for plastic surgery at this time. She and I thank you for her concern.

  2. Your hats are very nice–although, since I am past 70 and have lived in Buffalo NY area most of my life, I already have quite a large supply of warm hats and am not looking for any more at this time. If I think of anyone who needs one as a gift, I’ll remember you, though. They are quite attractive and warm looking.

    • Thank you for the kind words about my hats, Marcia. I appreciate them. I know what you mean about having a good supply of warm hats and not needing any more. I suspect most people who read my blog have all they need, when it comes to hats and everything. But yes, if you do think of someone who needs one, let me know.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
