    Crocheted Hats - $25

    Hand made hats by yours truly.

    Wife has told me I'm not allowed to spend "our" money on bikes and skis and whatnot, so I learned how to crochet and I'm selling hats as a side business to fund my gear purchases. They all fit an average sized head (helmet size medium-largeish). If you need something bigger or smaller, let me know and I can make it happen.

    $25 picked up locally
    $30 shipped continental US

    Paypal/Venmo/Cash/Barter (for Paypal either do friends and family or add 3%)
    Can combine shipping for multiple hats

    The hats are made of a wool/acrylic blend and are super warm.

    Here's the first batch, I'll keep rolling them out as I finish them in bunches. Custom creations welcome, typical turnaround is ~2 weeks.

    They are a wool/acrylic blend. Updated original post to reflect that info.

    Between the 8 pairs of skis and 7 bikes that I already have, I think she's probably right about salary dollars going to bike purchases, but don't tell her that. I'll PM my paypal info.

    BTW still owe you some money for mine from last year, you up this weekend?

    Won't be up this weekend, but you can give it to Radam if you see him. I think he'll be around. Glad you're still enjoying it!

    Smuggs, that you, yeah?

    I picked up a few of these for myself and friends years ago.

    A very pretty girl in the big red lift line at whistler, probably 5 or so years ago now, said 'I love the colour of your touque'. It was a custom made to order brown/grey merino pompom model you built me. It now sits in a plastic display case on my coffee table. True story save for the display case bs.

    You should have posted up in aug sep oct nov heading into Xmas and retired rich.

    Actually probably better you didn't as you'd not have been able to keep up with demand.

    Nope, not Smuggs, just picking up the slack where he left off.

    I swear acrylic is the warmest thing ever. Probably wouldn't want a shirt out of it, but I had these acrylic socks that I used to wear soaking wet out on the water in a boat in winter and they were miraculous.

    That blue & red w/ yellow piping one in the top row still available? PM incoming.

    The color name is "Cobalt". Some lights it looks blue, some lights it looks purple. It seems to be roughly the color above the "Quick Reply" text box if you're using the blue theme on this forum.

    i think there was a point where crocheting had to have been taking up all of his time to keep up with demand. It kinda sucked he stopped doing it so glad someone else is.

    Yeah, I spend a lot of time with yarn nearby. Travels with me wherever I go. On long drives, the Mrs tends to be behind the wheel. She gets carsick doing anything besides looking out the window, so this generally works out for me.

    All orders have been sent out. Current stash is below.

    Happy to do custom orders, they'll take about a week to make and send.

    If you don't mind my asking. Do you source yarn locally or online. What are you buying? Trade secret?

    Nice looking hats. Got my eye on one, but so many hats hard to justify.

    Keep this up top for sure. Bump

    It is Lion Brand Wool Ease yarn picked up from the craft store. I'd have to charge WAY more for locally sourced stuff. Thanks, let me know if one catches your eye or if you want a custom job.

    Two more orders sent out this morning.
