But I finished something. If you are a knit-blog reader, I’m sure you’ve heard of the Ravelympics. This hat was not participating. Strangely, despite signing on with a bunch of projects, I’ve done none. Not even the WIPs. I knit a random hat.
I kept seeing knit hats with brims and thinking “How lame. Brims look so silly.” Then we got a couple at work. I tried a couple on and they were REALLY cute. However, I couldn’t bring myself to buy them, even with my staff discount. So, I went on Rav, found the Cabled Newsboy Cap and decided that might just do. I couldn’t find any of the right needles, so went up a size. Thus, my hat is bigger and floppier than the pattern. Just the way I like it :D I think the yarn was Plymouth Encore Worsted. If it was, the hat took significantly less than 200 yards.
