Jack's Red Hat

So I knit. I do. I don't know if you knew that about me.

I had this really great red yarn and decided to make my nephew Jack a hat. As I was knitting it (actually, it was crochet), my sister was like, "Um... it's really red. Can a boy wear a red hat like that?"

"Of course boys can wear red hats," I said. "Red is the color of fire trucks."

So anyway, I finished the hat and put it on him, and it does look kind of girly. I don't think it's so much the color of the yarn, but more the type of yarn and the design of the hat. It kind of looks like he's wearing a red wig with braids. What do you think?
