Hat Hair

Remember the hat for my brother, last seen as a ball of yarn in this post? I finished it! He liked it a lot, enough to wear it, although evidently not enough to show his face in a picture. This is good for showing off the top, though.

I really liked the way the striping turned out, and I even think the pooling at the top is kind of cool. I used about half a skein of Araucania Nature Wool in some unknown teenage-boy friendly color. I used my trusty Clover size 6 16" circular, but were I to do it again, I might use a 5 or even a 4--this is a pretty light worsted, and the fabric was a little thinner than I might have liked.

It matches my dad's, too, with his initials on the inside.

Here's another one, too, whipped out using most of a skein of Donegal Tweed. Imagine it not on me, but on a curly-headed male. I think he'll like it.

Although, you know, I think I've had enough of these quick little accessories, fun though they are. How about a sweater? When I saw the Gathered Pullover (scroll down), I fell immediately in love, and today I gave in and got the yarn for it: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted, in Denim. Soft and squishy and delightful.

Oh boy oh boy oh boy.
