Greg's Big Melon
"Eaves, when are you going to knit me a hat?" One that fits my big melon!?!" Then the light bulb went off! GBM Hats!
It's hat week here in Josefina Fine Knits land. In order to keep up on inventory, I pick one item to knit for the entire week. Last week it was infinity scarves and this week its hats!
Being that it's hat week, I thought this would be a good time to introduce you to the inspiration behind our GBM hats. My good friend Greg.
See, Greg has a "generous size head" which means he has a hard time finding sunglasses and hats that fit. "Eaves, you gotta knit me a hat." And so, Greg's Big Melon (GBM) Hats were created.
I started out knitting giant hats, I mean like really big hats! Sometimes, my gauge is a little off. But then I remembered I had several customers with dreadlocks asking if I had hats that would fit their head and hair. So, then went into the inventory pile instead of the lets start over pile.
Before driving over to meet Greg and my Faithful Sherpa, I stopped at the store and pick up some fried chicken, cole slaw and beer. After we took the photos, we walked over to his boat, and had dinner on their aft deck. It was so wonderful to sit and share a meal with such a good friend!
Thank you Greg, for making me stretch my knitting collection to include heads of all sizes! And for being such a super fun model!
I'll be at the Santa's Helpers Holiday Gift Faire, in Napa, CA on December 10 - 11. Stop by and find your favorite hat! I have sizes for everyone!
