Here are a couple of pictures from that walk I told you we took on Sunday.
I wore my new hat. (I’m much happier with it than I appear to be in this picture. This is clearly me focusing too much on keeping my eyes open.)
I cast on the hat from the Cider Press Set, an Amy Christoffers hat and mitts pattern pair that I purchased a few weeks ago when they were on sale. This ribbed and waffled combination is awesome: squishy, stretchy, and oh-so-warm.
Also, totally addicting to knit. I made this hat out of most of a skein of Berocco Ultra Alpaca, and I love it. Good thing this color has my brother written all over it, or I’d keep it too! (I might make one for me out of handspun.) I used US 4 and US 6 needles because I couldn’t find my 3s and 5s.
Hooray for last minute (and late-night) Christmas knitting. I’m so excited to send this, along with the rest of his present, to my brother, who has to stay in Colorado for the holidays.
Love the hat! The decreases are particularly nice. It looks really cozy!
Cute! I want to keep all the christmas presents I’ve made, but the blog is keeping me honest :P
Great hat! So perfect for knitting this time of year…even the name screams fall. Lucky brother!
Awesome hat! It does look squishy and wonderful. A very lucky brother, indeed!
