Hat Knitting

Today I finished up a hat for friend who is undergoing chemo treatment. I hope it fits her. It's the pattern called "Checking on the Colonel" at Woven n Spun. It's very easy and knits up fast. The yarn feels fabulously soft. It's called Cotton Supreme from Universal Yarns. It's 100 percent cotton, which I hope will make it comfy for summer, and machine washable and dryable.

I think the way they worked out the decreases in the crown is pretty elegant way of continuing the pattern.

Here's a very out of focus, nighttime, in the bathroom mirror shot...but at least you can kind of see the shape. Well, I'm off to block it so Colleen can take it to her tomorrow.

Adorable! I need to figure out how to wash the wool we just sheered off of the sheep!
