Thingy Hat

This is the hat I traded for garlic. I love to trade. I don't really enjoy specific commands on my knitting, however. The garlic farmer wanted "thingies" on the top of his hat. I don't generally do thingies. Some people are thingy champion masters, constructing a whole career out of doing thingies, and doing it beautifully and artistically and interestingly.... I just don't really do them myself, I leave it to the Thingy Experts.....After all that, I do rather like my wee touch-of-thingy on this classic watch cap. I hope the farmer does.
The yarn is called Friendz Blendz. It is hand dyed, 50%mohair and 50%wool; 200yds/3.57 oz.; color TN-2; from Friends Folly Farm out of Monmouth, Maine. It is deliciously soft and machine washable to boot!

Tis a wonderful watch cap with thingies. I'm wondering about the size of said garlic farmer's head in comparison to the stone... Hmmmm...

That stone is head-sized and his brethren are even bigger (with a few babies). I feel a little sorry for the others, no hats for them. With or without thingies.
