Hat Swap

Ok, how fun is this.
Red Purl my favorite LYS, hosted a hat swap this last Friday.
I believe there were at least 12 participants.

I swapped my Sideways Grande even though my intentions were to make an entirely different hat while in Florida.

With the pattern in mind I searched for the right fibre, but alas could not make a match.

I also wanted my hat fibre to have been purchased at Red Purl. Amy generously hosted this successful event and she should have reaped some benefit.

Or is this just the small retail shop owner shouting out?

Anyway, it was great to see all of the different hats rendered by some wonderfully talented knitters.

This was my first time attending the Friday night knits at Red Purl, and you can tell that group has gotten to know each other well over the last year. I felt a little out of place, but it was still a fun time.

I was so envious of the EZ Snail Hat (back row 3rd from right) rendered by Amy that I purchased fibre to make my own!
