This hat is for Carrie. I almost, ALMOST finished it last night while knitting in the presence of the Yarn Harlot while she did her reading at the bookstore ...but I didn't have my DPN's and short of yelling out into the room of knitters for some (which I'm sure would have produced a variety of size 7 DPN's) I only asked 2 people and none were to be had...Instead I stayed up to finish the Karate Kid with D, closed it up and wove in all the tails so it's ready for Carrie to wear today. Luckily it's just in time, for the cold weather is making a comeback.

I think I need one for me now!


Looks great! I need a new hat this year -- maybe I'll give this one a try.

I'm zooming through Multnomah and loving it! Thanks for the recommendation. : )

Have a great weekend!
p.s. So envious that you got to see the Yarn Harlot. Hope it was fun!

This hat is super fun to make and it's amazingly squishy in this yarn!
