It's a Hat Thing

So today I went to WalMart and picked up some Lion Brand Fun Fur for the chemo caps. It's very soft to the touch and isn't hard to knit with at all. I went with some pretty wild colors; my WalMart has quite a selection.

I also picked up some acrylic in black because Joe decided that he wants a hat now. And it needs to be very washable. I'll be making him something in a watchcap style. And possibly one for myself as well...This is really turning out to be a hat-happy start to the New Year! My Silk Garden hat was finished last night and I'll probably post a picture tomorrow.

Buddy and I went for three walks today, for a total of 2.5 miles. I'm definitely not used to walking this much. Or to having my family ask for knits! You know how it is, everything just takes a little time!

Oh, what a funky yarn this is - perfect for Chemo Caps as I see it - lovely colours too! And yay for walking such a distance, I'm impressed!

There are washable wools, you know. the fun fur hat is wunnnerful! And good for You and Buddy for all that walking. (You might want to get that dog a sheep. Herding dogs need a job to keep them out of trouble.)
