Eight down, still three to go (for now). I’m in full out Robot Hat making mode! Toddler size, adult size, heck I even knitted a newborn sized one – I was worried it would be too small since it fit Soapfi’s Calliou doll so well, but the people who bought it loved it, so yeah me!
Overhauled my listings to make it easier for people to choose the size they want – apparently I had way to much faith in people following the directions and I need to force them to tell me how big to make their hat. I had originally just done the one listing to save on the listing fee, but the extra buck twenty to put up six extra listings will pay for itself 10 times over in not having to worry that people who are ignoring my (MULTIPLE) emails about what size they need will give me crappy feedback for taking too long to make and ship their hats! (Again with me and my first world problems!)
Looking forward to the weekend – Soapfi & I will be helping Gramma with her garage sale, then we’re going up to the Skagit Speedway for “Rolling Thunder Big Rigs, Sportsman Sprint Showdown And Outlaw Hornets“. It will be interesting to see if Soapfi gets into it or finds it too loud and scary. If nothing else we’ll probably manage to at least get a picture of her in big azz headphone/earmuff/hearing protector “thingies”!
In the mean time, you know you want one of these sweet adult robot hats!

Holy, HOLY, HOLY Crap!!!!! So as I mentioned earlier this week, my Robot Hat was proving popular on my Etsy Store. I was all jazzed that I would be making five hats and tee-hee wasn’t it nice that people liked my stuff.
Three days, and four finished hats later, my hands hurt and my face is turning as grey as the yarn I’ve been using! And there is one small problem, I wasn’t really thinking ahead and set up the listing to auto-renew after purchase… so I *STILL* have four hats to make cause people keep ordering them (that has since been fixed and why I purposely didn’t link a listing to it up there when I mentioned Robot Hat!)!!
I know, I know, first world problem!! But I’m running out of yarn & pupils for the eyeballs and I’ve already completely bought out TWO of the local JoAnn Craft stores of all their 15mm pupils and grey yarn! (Boo on Michaels for not carrying these pupils!). And I really need to get these finished before Soapfi & Daddy get home from back east because I want to spend my Sunday playing and catching up, not crocheting!
However, on the bright side, how cool is it that one of my hats will be heading out to Australia tomorrow?!
Holy Crap!!! My Robot Hat in my Etsy store has proven more popular than I ever imagined – over the weekend I received FIVE orders!! Including my first attempt to really really downsize the pattern for a newborn (which I have found I have to knit because I just can’t get it small enough with an “F” hook – so now I’m converting it from a crochet pattern to a knit pattern too – but I’m also paranoid that even though I’ve done “the maths” it will be too small – it looks so tiny – I don’t think Soapfi’s head was ever that small!)
Hopefully Soapfi is right and my crochet hooks are really Magic Wands and *poof* these will be done by the end of the week! So pardon me if I’m lazy and don’t post much until the hats are done!!
