What the hell.  "The Golden Spiders" by Rex Stout ♦♦♦♦◊

Heh. Turkey. Yum.

finished hatI finished the hat last night. I purposely made it a bit shallow, more like what I assume is a 'skater' hat than a keep-your-ears-and-cheeks-warm hat.

The kinda pattern, continued from the previous post, is 11 rows of stockinette, then k6, k2 together until the end of the round. K the next row. Continue decreasing (k5, k2tog; k4, k2tog etc.) separating each decrease row with a 'plain' knit row.

decrease pattWhen you reach k1, k2tog don't do the follow-up plain row, but go straight to k2 together on the next TWO rows. You should end up with 8 stitches to finish off, and a cool swirlish decrease pattern.

He's requested a scarf to go with the hat (it now occurs to me that maybe his mom told him to pick something made of yarn that wasn't a special design?), so if he does indeed want/need a hat for warmth, he will have a scarf as backup.

I think I'll make the scarf more red than white. He is a boy and he is 8½ years old - mostly white might not be the best choice!

My Sit and Chat project while my mom was here ended up going home with her. Shucky darn, I guess I'll have to make another for me... After I figured out the pattern, it went pretty quickly. I give you... Frosty:

I wonder how long it will take for Grace to send me her snail mail address?

That snowman is adorable!!!

Great job on the hat too! It is very skater-esque. I like the idea of the red being dominant in the scarf. You will show us the scarf project, won't you?!
