Here's what I knitted up last night...

...NOT. ;) I found this picture on a website and just loved it. The apple and watermelon hats I've made (and enormously enjoy making) are too feminine for little boys, but now that I've seen "Tomato," "Boysenberry" and "Eggplant," I can knit hats for all of the testosterone victims out there.

That said, I went to Yarn Theory and bought a single skein of red Karabella/Aurora 8 to make a tomato hat for my nephew, Trevor. In the next week or so, I'll pick a deep blue for the boysenberry color.

On the needles now is a hat for my son, Skander. He will allow me to knit him a hat as long as it's 1) not itchy and 2) has a skull and crossbones on it. I bought some Plymouth Encore and found a skull pattern on (what a name!). Once the hat is underway, I'll take some photographs and upload them. P.S. The tomato hat pattern can be found at the Knit Chicks site, Both patterns are free (thank you ladies!). Have a great weekend and happy knitting.
