Now onto the knitting - did I mention Pooch briefly took up knitting? He has half made a very wide scarf and in the process bought some chunky alpaca/wool mix in coloours he decided not to use. So having listened to him go on about bed socks in far too much details I banged these out this afternoon. The benefit of using 12.75mm needles and super-chunky yarn is that 18 stitches gets you a sock so they were never going to take long.
I do also now have another knitting project to queue up - another hat. The slouchy one just didn't look right. The final proof was when I forced it on my ickle sister, and she looked this good in it.
Advice One: (If you have a round face) Hats with an asymmetrical or irregular brim and brims that roll away from the face. Steer clear of hats that hug the face or head and hats that have a tailored look or have a round crown. Brimless hats and round crowns emphasize the roundness in the face. Choose soft, medium height crowns and trimmings which direct the eye upward. Avoid brimless hats and low round crowns that emphasize the roundness of the face.
Advice Two: (If you have a round face) Choose hats with high brims and angular shapes, avoid round, circular, or floppy-shaped hats, always choose hats that are wider than your face.
Advice Three: (ROUND) Medium or small brims, neat styles, worn forward or on a sassy slant. Asymmetrical brims will lessen the roundness.
So to summarise,
- Asymmetrical or rolling brim - must have a brim
- Avoid round crowns
- Consider sassy slanting
Knitted hats with brims...um? I need some fuel to power my thinking.
Thank you Greenwich Market.
