A window inside life at Augustana College

Hats! Hats for Sale!

Hello! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? If you are in the Midwest, you know it is pretty cold. And when I say that, I mean it is absolutely freezing outside. Absolute zero would be warmer…maybe. If you live somewhere warm (AKA not the Midwest), here’s a picture:

(No, I don’t know this person nor the city behind her.)

Now, I’ve noticed that Augustana students are a pretty crafty bunch. Usually, there are art fairs to showcase these artists’ talents and sell some  of their pieces (Speaking of that, how come there wasn’t one fall term? Did I miss it? Is there going to be one this  term? What about spring term? Who isn’t giving me my memos?). I bring this up because I believe weaving is a type of art form. I know many students own and use hat looms. In fact, I am one of them.

But if you lack the time, money, or ability (the last I doubt since the hat loom is pretty simple), and want a hat to keep you warm, I am selling some of the hats I’ve made.

I’m  thinking about selling these on etsy, but until I do, you can email me at kayleewagner10@augustana.edu with “Home-made Hat” in the subject line  if you would like to purchase one.

Price: $5 (maybe $7 if you request a certain pattern/style/color)
Types of yarn I use: Irish wool, Lion Brand Homespun yarn (98% Acrylic, 2% Polyester), Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn (100% Acrylic), Lion Brand Wool-Ease (80% Acrylic, 20% Wool), whatever yarn I find at home, etc…
Colors available (you may also request a specific color): Black, Blue/Navy, Grey, Tan/Brown, Yellow, Pink, Augie colors (blue and yellow), Green, Multicolored…

This is the first hat I made on the loom


P.S. Bonus points for those of you who figure out what the title is a reference to! 🙂

  1. How about from the book “Caps For Sale” about the peddlar and his monkey selling hats?
