kisses

Friday, November 16, 2007

This is one of my favorite hat patterns. The absolute quickest knit, and a great gift. I made Andrew one last year, and he wears it all of the time. I have had to sew the streamer back on a few times. While playing football at recess, the boys grab it to try to stop him. I would just love to see that little boy standing there holding the hershey kiss streamer, as Andrew keeps running.
I am happy to check two gifts off of my list.
It is the meathead hat from Larissa. Her knitalong book will be out in March, and you can preorder it here. Although, anyone that sends $4.50 to Larissa's paypal account, at dumbmail AT larissabrown DOT net, can receive the pattern via pdf form. The pattern has two sizes, with children wearing the small size. Check out the flickr group for ideas on embellishments, or add a streamer out of interfacing for a hershey kiss.

And speaking of kisses, have you seen all of the new flavors? Hot chocolate, peppermint, coffee, coconut cream, cherry cordial, the list goes on. I, of course, had to buy many bags of several different flavors. My favorite? Hands down, mint truffle.

Enjoy your weekend, and I hope it is full of kisses!

  4. Hi Leslie,
    I thought that she wasn't selling it that way anymore, but maybe I'm wrong. I've been DYING to get that pattern and am eagerly awaiting the book! Your Meathead(s) are fantastic.

  9. I love your hats! I still need to make one for my son.

    Is there a new version of the PDF including child's size for the meathead pattern? The one I currently have is sized: Sizes: Adult small/medium (adult large)

    However, I see you've made them for children?

    Hi there,

    Yes, I'm selling the pattern right now for $4.50. I just can't wait for the book, and so many people are interested. Leslie checked with me, so she's got all the info right.

    And hers are super duper cute. Wow.

    Thanks!

  24. Cute post, Les. If you're posting about new hats, I'm assuming Andrew's sweater is finished. Good for you! I like Hershey kisses...the gold wrapped ones with nuts...but give me a bag of chips and I'm in heaven!

  34. I love that hat! I keep seeing it and have been wanting to try it but have so many other projects going on right now that I shouldn't begin it...but maybe I will anyway. It is ok to have 6 different knitting projects going on at once, right?

    The candy cane kisses are my new favorite.
