I was able to finishÃ‚Â the hatÃ‚Â on the way to the fair.Ã‚Â
pattern: Ã‚Â Ann Norling #55 – Head Huggers
yarn: Ã‚Â Marfi (?)Ã‚Â Stripe (I lost the ball band, butÃ‚Â I know it was called Stripe)
needles:Ã‚Â Colver bamboo US8
cast on:Ã‚Â Aug 24thÃ‚Â Ã‚Â cast off:Ã‚Â August 26th
notes:Ã‚Â If hubby had actually liked the hat (grrr) I would have ripped back the decreases and about 1/2-1″, to shorten it a bit.Ã‚Â Hubby did like the overall fit, he didn’t even mind the length (I did), and he liked how light it was, he just didn’t like the stripes I guess.Ã‚Â Oh, well, it’s not like it was a long or difficult knit.Ã‚Â I’ll make him one in a solid color, later.
ETA:Ã‚Â This hat will be going to the The Dulaan Project.Ã‚Â Hubby doesn’t want it and it’s too big for the kidlets, although they both like it, and I really don’t feel like ripping it out and reknitting it to fit either of them. It’s not like I don’t have any more yarn with which to knit them each a hat.
