Monday Micro: Brim bonanza

Apparently people like hat brims.

When I made my slouchy, faux-cable hat for a customer and added a brim at her request, I couldn't believe all the feedback I got at my C. Beth Crochet Facebook page. I'm thrilled to have designed something that so many people like! Here it is:

Next up? I'm making a hat for me...for me! I model all these hats that I love and them send them out to their owners. I've only kept one for me so far, and while I love the colors, it's not my favorite design. So I've got something in my head that I'm planning to try, and I'm psyched that I get to keep it this time!

I attended an auction over the weekend w/hockey players auctioning their jerseys off after a game, several of them had hats on similar to that. I guess they hide "helmet hair" well.

Good for you! No sense in working so hard and not getting to enjoy any of the products for yourself. I can't wait to see what you make for yourself!

What a cute hat! And I love the way it fits you. It looks very comfortable. It's fun to see you enjoying and growing in a wonderful talent like this. Your hats are all just darling, but then maybe part of that is because they are always shown on such cute models! :)
