After about three months of neglect, I have finally finished the hat I said I would make for my husband for his birthday. Does it count that I started it in October at least? You know, when he actually had his birthday? Hehe... oh well! He seems pretty happy with it tonight when I handed it over anyway.
The pattern I used is titled "Eat - A Hat" and was designed by Naomi Drew. It is a free download and can be found on Ravelry if you have an account (which is also free, I might add). You can download the pattern by clicking here.
The hat is a fairly simple pattern without being too boring. I've managed to actually make two hats like this, which is almost unheard of for me. I tend to be a process knitter and enjoy learning knew things and don't usually repeat the same project over and over. This time I used a DK weight Baby Alpaca yarn by Misty Mountain Farm that I got when I went to Rhinebeck this past year.
Rhinebeck, or the New York Sheep & Wool Festival, is the first fiber festival I have ever gone to and I had a blast. I think I went to Rhinebeck sometime during my Anti-blogsmas period of the year, so I apologize for not having spoken of it before. I hope to go to more local festivals this year such as MA Sheep & Wool. I might even venture up to NH or VT to check those out as well.
Well, I'm all tuckered out from all this finished projecty excitement. Sweet dreams!
