Dragon Butt Hat

Friday night we decided we needed food and fun, and a celebration of our eighth wedding anniversary.
We met with Tommy, Amanda and of course Sean-boy at a local Chinese restaurant called 'Great Lakes Seafood' (on Carpenter road, if you are in the area).
It has wonderful dim sum, and Hong Kong style Chinese dishes. (I'm gonna try the tripe next time).
Anyhoo, I brought along my newest pattern sample, the Dragon Butt hat. The hat started as something completely different (and the original idea will still come to be this Fall) but it grew into its own unique being, full of exuberance.
We took turns trying it on and snapping photos.

That is a GREAT hat! Was it planned that Oscar's shirt matches the hat?

Happy anniversary,

Jan

Thanks Jan!
Nope, no planning at all. I shoved it in my bag and brought it out when we were all there :-}

I LOVE IT! How fun and what good sports for everyone trying it one and getting their picture made. The baby is WAY too cute.

I say, knit another in green rather than pink/orange, and put it on Oscar for Halloween. Green man. Perfect.

It's the green man hat, I know it!
