5KCBWDAY2: Dating Profile for a Knit Hat

13 May 2014

I’m a day late starting Knit and Crochet Blog Week, but in the interest of not succumbing to perfectionism, I am going to just jump in where I am. The Day Two topic:

Hat and Socks for Baby

Alex’s pink hat with some cute little socks, which Alex wore maybe once.

Wooly pink hat (Madelinetosh Tosh DK, Ms. Taylor) seeks companion for travel, outdoor adventure, learning new things. Began life as part of Tea Leaves Cardigan project, but turned into extra yarn and then stash. Finally found my calling as first item knit for new baby, when mother learned she was having a girl. Traveled with family to Wales:

America:

Westward Ho! Hat discovers America. Baby discovers her own cuteness.

And Istanbul:

On the Asian side of Istanbul: a whole new continent! Also, some cute kid in the background.

I’m unable to reveal my current location. The child on whose head I resided for the better part of a year became disillusioned with headwear, and one day (it is presumed) she yanked me off and tossed me out of her buggy. This had happened several times before, but her staff always retrieved me. Then, one day, they didn’t. [It was the male staffer on duty that day. But I digress.]

In search of new head and/or fellow hat with whom to explore the colleges and thrift stores of Oxford with a view to attending a bop. Willing to consider hat of other colors and fibres, but machine-knits need not apply.
