|Women's Beehive Hat by IKnit4aCure|
Besides being a cute & versatile hat pattern and the fact that the shop donates a part of their proceeds to the American Cancer Society, what really caught my eye with this pattern is the kilt pin in the picture. What a cute way to embellish a hat! Plus, it's a kilt pin. A kilt pin! Have I mentioned my recent obsession with Outlander?
My Outlander addiction should be a whole other blog post. The show doesn't come on our TV, but I began reading the first book last week and have done nothing but read & watch Youtube clips ever since. I'm totally addicted. It's also made me realize why my family talks funny. While my mom's family have been in America since just before the American Revolution, they originally haled from Scotland and counted themselves among theJohnstone clan. And instead of saying, "the mouse ran out and about the house," we pronounce it "the 'mose' ran 'oat' and 'aboat' the 'hose'." I've always wondered why and now I know. Thank you, Jamie.
