A Month of Craft Photos Day Three - An Old Finished Object
My red slouch hat - one of the very first hats that I learned how to make. I remember I was living and working up at the Manning Park Ski Resort and we barely had the internet. Whenever I would go home I would always try to find a pattern for the perfect hat, but I never ended up finding one so I designed one myself instead. I also had a dark olive green one with a diamond pattern on it and I wore these things pretty much everyday! Especially when I was working on the ski hill and I was actually allowed to wear them to work.
There was a little bit of time between the summer and winter seasons when there was no work for me, but I was still living up there anyway. I was super broke - like broke broke, not enough money for groceries broke - and I would trade dinner and leftovers for a knit hat. I got some goooood meals that fall.
