Happy (belated) Felt Hat Day!

A felt hat is the perfect accessory for exploring the rainy ruins of Achill Island, Ireland, September 2006.

Apparently, yesterday was Felt Hat Day… who knew?

(FYI: Two days ago was Cream-filled Doughnut Day, while today is Collect Rocks Day.)

I hope yours was happy… I spent the better part of the day signing myself up for a Twitter account: @CCMFeltHats, if you like to tweet!

Holier Hats! 2006

A photo collage showing Carrie Cahill Mulligan's Heirloom Handknit Felt Hats sold in 2006.   In 2006, I had my busiest, most successful year with Heirloom Handknit Hats… almost 200 hats sold!  (Only 187 are pictured here… I didn’t get photos of all of them… alas!) I love knowing that all these hats are out there in the world, keeping someone warm and stylish, and adding a bit of cheer to a dreary winter day.Since the collage photos are so tiny, you can peruse this photo album to get a better look…

If you have one of these hats, I would love hearing from you… just click on “comments” and leave a note… Have you been anywhere special in your Heirloom Handknit Hat?

Holy Hats!

I’ve just started playing with Google’s Picasa web albums and discovered the “collage” command. Here is my first attempt, showcasing hats that sold in 2005:A collage of my Heirloom Handknit Hats sold in 2005.  And in case you’d like a closer look, here’s a photo album showing those same hats sold in 2005, with larger images (thanks for the idea, Larissa!):
