How You Doin'?

The pattern is wonderful and has a jogless jog technique that is new for me. I used Lamb's Pride Worsted and some Noro Silk Garden.

I really like the color combination with the gray. My brother Mike gave me a hat book as part of my gift. I asked if he wanted a hat. Yes, he wanted one but nothing as fancy as the hats in the books. I had just finished this hat and said "You mean a simple hat like this?" Yep. So I gifted this hat to Mike.

What is wonderful is when I see people wearing the knitted item I made for them. My brother wore the hat the rest of the day. I did mention that he didn't have to wear it for my benefit. "I'm cold and it keeps me warm." His wife wore her shawl all day, too.

I had a great knitting day at Thanksmas 2009. Two of my neices asked me to knit Topi hats for them. My future nephew-in-law wants a red Topi and my great nephew's father wants a red stocking hat. I'm happy that so many of the family has asked for hand knitted items.
