Yes, Gary...It's Another Hat...

My brother-in-law, Gary, reads my blog. He commented that I have a lot of knitting posts. I guess I do lately cause that is pretty much all that I seem to do that is remotely interesting. My life is not all that exciting so there is not too much to take pictures of.

I finished this hat today. Loyal readers will notice that it is a little bit different than the others. It is the same old standby, the rolled brim, but this one has a tri-peak top. This hat is so cute. I knit it for a little boy who I wanted to send a Spirit Jump to, but it might be too big. I am not good about checking my gauge on a new pattern and I did do some things a little different than the pattern called for. If it measures too big, I will find someone who could use this hat.

Awh, go you! The tri tip points are so cute, you did it so well. The yarn looks really soft too...is it some sort of chenille?

The yarn is Lion Brand "Cupcake". I found 7 skeins at Michaels for .99 each. I could not pass it up. The pattern was supposed to be one by Woolly Wormhead, but I adapted it too much to figure out the math to do the tips right. So I just closed it up the usual way.

Thanks for the compliment. It means alot coming from a knitting master :)

Well, you can send Gary over to my blog to read about the exciting adventures of my frogs and then he will think the knitting stories are not so bad afterall! Geesh, nobody appreciates us, Merry.
