My stepfather's hat is finished! Given his lack of, um, hair, and those cold Manhattan winds, he will definitely get some use out of it.
I knit this baby in Telemark. The yarn was great, it blocked well, and the pattern is easy and fun! Everyone who has seen it wants one! My only modification was to not do the lining, which seemed like too much bulk to me once the hat was complete.
Can you guess which photo is me? The other is Bella modeling the (unblocked) hat.
