Hat for Gramps

I firmly believe that there is no such thing as having too many hats. Maybe if you are a hoarder or something, but in general… hats get misplaced, lost, and die horrible deaths. So I think it is ok to knit people hats even if they already have one.

Like my grandpa. He has at least one rib knit beanie style black hats. He shoves it into his coat pocket when he comes inside. When he pulls it on, it covers his ears. He somehow looks just as distinguished wearing a beanie style black hat as he does without.

So I knit him this hat. It’s a little bit more interesting than a plain ol’ rib knit hat, but not too much. It’s superwash wool, so it can be tossed into the washer without a problem. I hope he likes it.
