FO: Hats for Hillary

I don’t think it comes as a surprise to anyone who has read my blog over the last few months to realize I’m voting for Hillary Clinton. I work in Washington, DC (when I walk out of my office building I have a straight line of sight to the White House) and I live in the Maryland suburbs and I’m fully consumed with politics on a daily basis. During the Democratic National Convention I ordered some Hillary swag that included a pack of embroidered patches. I wasn’t sure what I would knit with them but then decided a hat was in order.
Decisions, decisions. Knit up a hat in support of @hillaryclinton and now I don't know which patch to add. #imwithher #knittersforhillary #nevernotknitting
You may have seen this pic on my Instagram feed and I ended up making a Hillary Hat using the H and the Hillary16 patch on this red hat and gave it to my Mom. She’s been volunteering for the campaign in Northern Virginia and I wanted her to have some swag. I bought a skein of cobalt blue to use the heart patch on but then on Instagram I saw an even better hat to make!

Yellow Cosmo is offering the I’m With Her Hat pattern for free!! I’m going to use the cobalt blue yarn for the hat and make my arrow red and probably add my heart patch on the side. If you’re looking for a way to show your support download that pattern!

  1. Nice! I like both of the hats but I LOVE the red one.

  2. Best swag I’ve seen this whole election! 🙂 We’re with you out here in Oregon!

  3. I’m totally going for the free hat pattern. Just sent my absentee ballot in. Keeping my fingers that sanity prevails.

  4. Go Hillary! I got my pink “Woman’sCard” from the campaign; as soon as I get my ballot in the mail I’ll be playing my card and sending in my vote.
