Hurricane Hat

My friend Jimmy sent this to me
By the time the hurricane made it our way it was downgraded to a tropical storm. However, we were still forced to evacuate and had no power from 9 a.m. Sunday to about 3:30 p.m. today...which wasn't very fun.  But thanks to Irene, I finished Sarah's hat!

Slouchy hats aren't necessarily my preferred type of hat (I have a small head), and as I had mentioned earlier I made the hat for Sarah's head, so if it was for me I would have gone with the smaller size.  But I'm happy with how it came out and I think she will love it!

Nate took these photos, and you get to meet Sumo in them as well.

  1. I love that hat. So cute on you. Love how you took a bad situation and made it a positive. Glad you are okay.

  2. Glad you weathered the storm ok. We did ok, too. Mostly just branches and such.

  3. @ Kim - Thanks! I might eventually make a new hat for myself that isn't so slouchy...and I tend to wear striped shirts in my hat shots ROFL...look at my first hat photo back in March. I need to make you a new dishcloth or two.

    @ Inky - I'm glad you were OK too! It could have been so much worse. glad you're OK.

  4. Glad you got through ok, and yay for having time to finish the cute hat ;)

  5. The stupid "hurricane" really messed up my travels this week. Where did you have to stay?

    The hat looks great, by the way.

  6. @ Crystal - we stayed across town in a non-evacuation zone. Thankfully, we didn't have to go too far...phew! Although, knitting by candle light...could have done with out!
