Was It Cool In The Eighties?

Recently I've gotten to do a teeny bit of knitting due to the fact that The Bub is napping more regularly. Unfortunately I seem to be unable to recapture the success I had as a rank beginner. On first glance The New Hat is great, fuzzy, nubbly, and subtly stripey...

Until you see it next to a real hat, that fits a real head...

Now, I am a big fan of the whole "low rise" phenomenon. My trousers have been dangling from my hips since some time in the ancient past of my high school years. But I'm doubting my luck sparking a new fashion trend for the winter, The Low Rise Hat. It sexy, its new! Show off those alluring ears, you scamp!

Or I guess I could try and find someone who needs a not-so-subdued yarmulke... Yeah, or I could just unknit the last 14 rows and make a real hat that someone could actually wear. Hopefully I can get around to that before winter is totally over...

Well, perhaps it is not a hat you are making, but some kind of knee cap warmer?

Is the Bub be a sleepin' perhaps some WoW in your future?
