100_7174Bee had asked, a couple of weeks ago, for a blue hat.  I knew he had had trouble with the one I knit for him last year.  (he says some friends of his, at school, made fun of it…  I'm not sure what there was to make fun of, it was just a gray cap with blue trim, but whatever…)  So I made this one.  The pattern is called Thorpe.  Loved it the moment I saw it.  I ended up trimming the braids, per Scott's suggestion.100_7187 

First thing Bee said, when he tried it on, was that it looked like a girl…  hmm, ok.  I asked, "Will you wear it at school, if you think it looks like a girl?"  He shook his head no. 

So, I asked him if he'd like me to cut off the braids and his response was, "no, I like them.  I'll wear the hat at home, Mommy."  So the kid still doesn't have a hat to wear to school.  I think I'll buy one at Wal-mart!  It's a good thing he's cute!
