It’s pretty safe to say I’m a passionate shaver that practices the art of shaving everyday. I enjoy every aspect of shaving from the pre and post prep routine to the shaving routines and rituals that enhances ones shaving experiences. I’m always searching for new shaving products and looking for the next great shave. Searching for new shaving products certainly has a couple of strong points. Sometimes you find great products when you least expect it. Another strong point of searching for new products is, it leads to new and great ideas and leads you down the path of creativity.
Searching for something usually means you have a general idea of what you are looking for. The rest of it is just speculation and day dreaming of what you could find along the way of your search for the perfect product or item. Sometimes your greatest ideas or accomplishments can start from a search not relating to what you were looking for in the first place. Imagine if you would, the individual that comes up with solution to world peace by searching for directions on how to make the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Sounds funny but yet not to far of from the truth. Long story short, don’t forget to dream!
I found StaceysKnitWits on Etsy.com after initially starting a search for shaving products. I decided to start searching for beanies. Why you ask? well, Bald guys need to keep their heads warm as well. There are many benefits to living the Bald lifestyle. There are also a couple of downsides to the Bald Lifestyle as well. One of the down falls is that your head gets cold quick in cold weather. The lack of hair causes heat to escape out of the top of your head. if you are fully clothed then your head tends to lose even more body heat as well. Stacey from StaceysKnitWits hand makes all of her items on her website from several materials including wool, polyester and acrylic. her items range from gloves to beanies. I decided to try a slouchy beanie from her website. Its my first slouchy beanie and I wasn’t sure whether I would like it or not. I’m glad I stepped out of my comfort zone to try something new and I’m sure if you try some of her handmade items you will like them as well.
After your shave for the day or night is done, sometimes you need extra protection depending on the weather. Maybe you just want to make a statement, or, perhaps you want to just wear a beanie for no reason at all other than to wear a great beanie. It’s difficult for me to pick out beanies. I’m pretty picky when it comes to how a beanie looks and feels on my Dome. When I found the slouchy beanie on StaceysKnitWits I knew that I wanted to try one.
Stacey told me right away she hand makes all of her items so I knew it wasn’t going to be a fast process which is fine with me especially if it’s hand-made. My slouchy beanie is made out of Wool, Acrylic and Alpaca. She has the materials used listed on her website with each handmade item so if you are allergic to certain materials you know right away what’s made out of what. The beanie has a wide opening and is overly sized hencing the name slouchy beanie. The material it’s made out of conforms very nicely to your dome but doesn’t fit snug around your dome since it is a slouchy beanie. The opening to the beanie itself is wide in diameter giving you the option once the beanie is on to slouch it any way you want to. once you put it on it just lays there nicely keeping your head warm. The beanie carries weight giving it a substantial feel in your hands. The beanie feels thick but does not feel heavy while wearing it. Once you have it on you forget it’s even there.
The one thing I was worried about in the beginning but quickly vanished after wearing the slouchy beanie from StaceysKnitWits was its dependability. I worried that since it had such a wide opening for your dome to fit in while slouching the beanie, would it blow of or just fall of my dome easily? That question was quickly answered no. The beanie lays very nicely across your dome and does not move around giving the slouchy beanie from StaceysKnitWits a substantial feeling of dependability. The slouchy beanie from StaceysKnitWits also does an excellent job of keeping my dome warm as well. With its large opening for your dome putting it on and taking it off is an easy thing to accomplish compared to a snug form-fitting beanie that you have to reposition every time you put it on or take it off.
So what are my final thoughts on the slouchy beanie from StaceysKnitWits? A great beanie with functional dependability. The slouchy beanie fits nicely across you dome leaving plenty of space to slouch it any way you want. The material its made out of gives this slouchy beanie some weight but light enough to forget it’s on your head making everyday use an everyday thing. The wide opening for your head gives this slouchy beanie an ease of use that will satisfy any beanie lover no matter if this is his or her first beanie or one of many beanies its sure to be a favorite beanie.
