Took a while….

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.

I didn’t put in the plastic on the brim, but I like it the way it is.

    That is one adorable hat on an even more adorable person (you look very cute!).
    It’s the thing about hats, you just gotta keep looking until you find the type that suits you. And you certainly have done that here!
