Ed's hat

Ed in his hat

I knitted this hat for Ed for his birthday. It's loosely based on a pattern from Knitting for Dummies. The hat is knitted flat and then there are several variations for finishing it, none of which I actually did. There are many mistakes knitted into this hat, but it doesn't look so bad if you don't examine it closely. Heh. It's made of worsted Wool-Ease, stripes of navy and a variegated called "Pines." I knitted a combination of stockinette and garter to further the stripey theme. He liked it and it fits and it will be warm when cool weather comes around again, so I guess those are the most important things. Well, and I learned a lot from this experience. Perhaps the main thing I learned is that I will tire of a project quickly if I have a serious time shortage to deal with. Must start projects far, far in advance. Maybe I'll take a photo of just the hat and put it up. Maybe.
