Carrot Top - FO# 1.2007

I'm happy to share my first FO of 2007...Carrot Top!

After staring at balls from my stash bin, I came up with this crazy idea.

My husband plans to wear it while jogging --- which makes me laugh. Can you imagine a 6'4" guy running down the street with this on top of his head?

Project Details...
Pattern: Carrot Top
Yarn: Karabella Aurora 8
Needles: 8 - straight & dpns
Stash Reduction: 2 balls

That is a teriffic hat! I can just imagine your husband running with it! Now, if I could just convince my husband to ROW with something like that on his head my life would be complete! ;-)

That would be so hysterical to see! I love it. Great hat.

Thanks for the comment on my mittens. Obviously, I love orange.

Awesome-ya know I bet with your husband's height and the green part he would make a really handy windsock-you know one of those things for wind direction? Heh, good idea, right?

I hope you like Footballers Wives-look out for really long nails, LOTS of champagne & smoking-its a drama-but I am sure you will see the laugh out loud parts!
Dude, I just checked your profile-I didn't realize you were a CLASH FAN! That Rocks! Did you like any of the Strummer solo stuff?

That's awesome that your husband is willing to wear it while jogging. Though if I think about it, it doesn't get cold enough where I am to wear one while jogging.

Wow, so cool, now are you going to go with a whole vegetable line of patterns too? I was thinking radish would be cool, or for the Cornheads up in Nebraska (where i used to live) you could make corn hats! Too cute!
