One Reason Why I Am A Pacifist
At our wedding, my husband's brother announced to all that he would prefer to be referred to as my "brother by another brother" (BYAB) rather than brother-in-law, reflecting the quirkiness of the day as a whole.
Here are my two attempts to satisfy my BYAB Matt's recent request for a knitted camouflage hat. I made the hat on the bottom first-- it's not bad but the brim is enormous. That's what I get for going patternless and roughly estimating the size of Matt's head. (No, Matt, I don't really think your head is that big.) I used size 4 needles to make it, so I really didn't want to rip the whole thing apart. I toyed with the idea of sewing in a seam, but then I decided to use a different yarn and crochet another hat. Which I thought looked better, until my BYAB's brother (also known as my husband) weighed in with the opinion that it looked kinda granny-ish.
So, gentle reader, I look to you for your opinion: which hat should I send to Matt? The modified one or the granny camo one? I've got half a mind to send both and let him decide, but I'd love your feedback!
Bottom line: Camo and I just don't get along. I guess that's why I was in the Peace Corps.
