More Than Meets The Eye

Posted by 2ton Inspired on November 27, 2007

When I asked my nephew if he was a Decepticon he said, “I’m the good guys!”

The movie has made Transformers the new cool toy for kids. Heck for men too. Thanksgiving was spent with 3 grown men attempting to transform Octimus Prime, Jazz and a few other Autobots. I have pictures but I won’t embarrass them. Teehee. But if you know me then you know who I’m talking about!

Anyway, back to my nephew. I couldn’t resist asking if he wanted a Transformers Hat and then after his declaration to the Autobots I don’t have the heart to use the pattern that i had in mind. The Transformers Toque from yes, i MADE that because it has both the Autobots and Decepicons.

I prefer to make hats in the round but then wouldn’t be able to use fair-isle if I just do an Autobot on one side. So my options right now are:

– Doing the Autobot chart on the front and then the words More Then Meets the Eye on the back. His head is about the size of mine (who knew kids had such big heads?!). I guess some swatching is in order.

– Learning how to double knit cause I think that will allow me to do a chart on just the front. I’ve been meaning to learn how to double knit. It seems pretty easy I just need to take the time to actually learn.

I’m always up for a new challenge and this seems like an interesting one. I just hope I have enough green yarn!
