Do you think you need a winter hat on Memorial Day?

 I hope everyone had a very happy Memorial Day weekend!  We have been out of town for a few days having fun in Island Park (just outside of West Yellowstone.)  Before I left I wondered what weather of clothes I should pack. I decided to throw in some winter clothes because who knows what the weather will be like in the mountains.  I am sure glad that I did because it was pretty much winter the whole time we were there.
Here is a picture off of the deck of the cabin we stayed in. Yes, the die hard fishermen in my family still went out on the lake fishing!

I guess the fish don't mind the cold because the fishing was successful!

Even the bears were in the snow!

We spent most of the time inside or if we were outside we were bundled up! 
Come on! It is almost the first of June! 
At the last minute I threw in this hat that I had been working on.

It is knit and I liked the band that wrapped around and buttoned. I kind of made up the pattern, but liked how it turned out.

On my early morning runs this hat was greatly appreciated by my ears.
I have another hat that I have been working on.

This one was a special order for a little girl whose Dad is a BIG UTAH fan!
He can't wait for football season to start so his little princess can wear this.( I bet after this weekend he didn't have to wait!)

I made up this pattern as well and used an eyelash yarn to crochet around the edge. I then used my embroidery machine to make the "U". (Can I tell you how much I love that embroidery machine! It makes sewing so much fun!)
I hope your Memorial Day weekend was warm, and dry, because mine sure wasn't!

Wow, well from sunny Florida I can't hardly imagine the snow at this time of year... it looks so cozy though and your hats definitely make it better!

Wow! Late snow! But my girl in Logan texted me on monday (while we were sitting in 90 degrees at the pool) that she woke up to snow! I'm hoping you get warm weather soon!
Thanks for linking up to Making It With Allie! I can't wait to see what you have for next week!
