Bundle of blue hats

I am heading to Las Vegas this coming weekend for a biennial reunion with four high school friends. The four are all turning 60, and I am the fifth youngster at 59 years. So what to make/take to mark the significant event? Why a knitted hat of course! What else would you want in Las Vegas to keep you warm while wearing a strapless dress and high heels (except that several of us have bunions, and loose upper arms - may have to rethink the outfit to accompany the hat . . . ).

Also I just upgraded to an IPhone 4, which means that I can theoretically more easily take a photo of myself modelling a hat, hmmmm. Note the googly eyes as I attempt to peer up into the phone.

Anyway, I knit a whole bundle of hats, so there will be lots to choose from.
