My favorite Hat

Well since the test knit looks pretty much the same and the sweater is in a little break (about 2 inches from the end of the right side) I thought a little trip done memory lane might be good.

Yeah Sockhead

This is my Sockhead Hat (sorry only Rav link) I love this yarn and this colorway. I had a pair of socks that I loved before they were felted in the wash. I have a pair of fingerless mitts that I wear all the time and did a test knit scarf with this colorway in a different weight yarn. I had 1 hank left and figured a hat would complete the set. I tried several patterns but nothing worked for me. The hats were ok but I didn't love it and well I wanted to love it. This was I do believe the 4th pattern I tried. Now the pattern is originally written for sock weight yarn but well a little math and everything is good to go. I basically knitted until I ran out of yarn

This is also the hat that The Hubby says make me look like I have a big forehead. Well it only took him nine and a half years to discover i have a big forehead. = )

They can be a little slow sometimes...

;) Love the hat. I can't seem to find one that works with my hair. I do feel a little bit better knowing that it took you 4 tries, though. I'm on my second try, but so far, no go.
