Snow Rant and a Stashbuster Hat

Sorry I’ve been so MIA again.  Lots of real life stuff happening lately.  Sometimes it’s extremely difficult to be a grownup.  Sometimes I want someone to be EXTREMELY proud of me for just not throwing a world-class tantrum when I reeeeeally want to.


I’ve been trying to formulate a Plan of Attack for my blog and my shop, and I think I’m finally starting to get it.  So hopefully you’ll all see more of me on here starting right after Thanksgiving!

Speaking of which, Thanksgiving will be here in three days, and I just went for a walk with only a sweater over my t-shirt.

These two facts should not be in the same sentence!  They should be nowhere near each other.  My loved ones know I am firm in my convictions.   One of those convictions is that November is supposed to be cold.

It’s not that I’m super crazy about the cold, it’s just that, since the beginning of time, cold and November have always gone together here in MinneSNOWta.  According to the weather app on my Ipod, those two don’t plan on getting back together until Black Friday.

But since it is, in fact, November, I will turn my attention to a topic that usually comes up this time of year.


Has anyone else noticed that “hat” is kind of a funny word?  It doesn’t seem like it should be funny. 

But it kind of is.

Want to make the word “hat” even funnier?  Stick the word “stashbuster” in front of it!

Shut up, spellcheck!  “Stashbuster” is so a word, because I’m a former English major and I say it is! :p

Anyway, I came up with this hat earlier this year, shown here on my friend Karis. 
It was called the "stashbuster" because I had this bright pink yarn in my stash that I needed to use up.  I made it while I was watching a “Gilmore Girls” episode.  Lorelai was walking around in the snow in an adorable hat.  (I would love to walk around in the snow, but in order for that to happen, there needs to actually be snow!)  Luna, the cat we had at the time, was probably trying to break into my hearing aid case.  That girl was a hearing aid bandit.  I don’t get what is so fascinating about a hunk of plastic.


Here’s the link to the Stashbuster Hat in the Etsy shop, and I hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving!

  1. Spell check always messes me up when I'm trying to type "yarn speak" I have to Google it and make sure it's a word. Darn you spell check for making me undermine my work. And at the same time thank you for telling me I spelled "favorite" wrong. Me and spell check, a love hate romance, lol. :)
    Very cute hat, I like the color!
