Tulsa (my town) has an annual 5K run on Thanksgiving Day. It’s called the Turkey Trot… and my big brother talked me into running it last year (along with my little brother and my husband). Although I had totally NOT been doing any running at the time, I wanted to be a supportive sister and prove that I still had it in me to run 3 miles. Simple, right?! Oh…. How wrong I was. Although I was setting a much slower pace than all 3 of them, the favorite men in my life stayed back with me, cheered me on, and even walked with me when my little legs felt like they were turning to Jell-O. We crossed the finish line all at the same time, and I knew that I had something to be very thankful for! So. With Thanksgiving approaching again, I get the same invitation. And for some reason, I accept the challenge again. Still… with very little running going on for me these days. But I can’t say no to my brother. He’s driving 9 hours to spend the holiday with us, how can I say no?! But this year I’ve decided that if I’m going, I’m at least going in style. I’m going to be noticed for my awesome hat instead of the red face and labored breathing that will be going on underneath the hat. So, the idea for the Tom Turkey hat was born. I think it turned out to be an awesome little hat. And I am going to totally ROCK that Turkey Trot!

All knitting patterns are in ENGLISH ONLY. Etsy has a great auto-translate feature... so this may lead some to believe the pattern is in their native language, but they are in English only. If you need a translation, all I can do is Google Translate or something like that. I apologize for the inconvenience to all my International friends.
