Adventures of the purple hat

OK, I promise not to go on and on about it, but I really did have a great holiday. I can't wait to go back.

But I just wanted to share some pictures of perhaps the most useful (and lovely) item that I took with me on my hols: my purple hat. This soft, smooshy, comfy, warm, no-hat-hair hat was made for me by PomPom and gifted to me in a Ravelry favourite colours swap. Little did I realise just how handy it would be in the surprisingly cold spring weather of parts of Arizona.

I present to you the adventures of my purple hat:


Purple hat at the Grand Canyon
Purple hat in the Grand Canyon forest
(it's not all about the desert)



Purple hat in the Petrified Forest


Purple hat at the historic Hubbell Trading Post

Purple hat in the snow on Second Mesa

Thanks, Sally. I love my purple hat.

Come back with your purple hat any time! We miss you both!

I am SO pleased that the hat went to such a good home - and immediately was taken on holiday. Lucky hat!

Now I'll have to show the travels of the green bag - though only around NSW unfortunately.

That's so cool that you have a piece of clothing that's started travelling with you. You'll have to keep it up now, making your Purple Hat even more well travelled! :)

The purple hat is beautiful! I was admiring it in the other photos. Lucky you! And lucky hat getting to partake of such an amazing trip!

Have you come back down to earth yet, or are you planning your next trip already?

Wonderful to read about your travels, and enjoy your photos. It's so hard to come home again, leaving beloved family behind, isn't it.
