that reindeer hat

Is it still wip it Wednesday somewhere? Mid Pacific?  I'm posting this one  anyway.  Last month I was flapping my mouth offering to make handknits for family members .  Poking around on Ravely, as one does, I came across a hat , and was sitting there chortling when I saw that it had over 1000 versions. That drew my son's attention. He looked. He said he needed one.
Not want. Need. In orange and white. 0062_GZucker1211famvar 
And so, I am knitting the Fornicating Reindeer Hat. (That a Ravelry link. Here's a particularly nice one on a blog. )It is mind boggling that there are 1028 different versions of this hat prancing around the world. Go look.  I know, it's a little tacky but it's also funny.  He may have been 5 years old and waiting for a sweater with penguins (who were not fornicating) the last time he was this excited about something I was knitting. Plus, I am enjoying the colorwork.
The yarn? it's from  Plymouth , superwash merino. Because I know my customers. . •••••••••••••• 
Need a new wip yourself?  I just saw this hat pattern, Empire. Cute. Fast. Not boring.

Dang, wish I had the guts to knit this pattern for my youngest nephew (14 years old). Unfortunately my brother & sister in law would probably recognize the image before he would and throw me and the hat out of the family celebration. Perhaps I can get away with it in a couple of years.

All of which is to say, you're a very cool mom to do this. :)

I saw one in the wild the other day. It was all I could do to walk up and shake the wearer's hand.

Happy New Year!

OK, I'm late to the party, but I'm enjoying the party.

If this hat's rockin'
Don't come knockin'

Technically, I don't think it's fornicating, if it's reindeer. Birds do it, bees do it, even educated reindeer do it.

I’d come to recognize with you on this. Which is not something I typically do! I really like reading a post that will make people think.
