Knit Hat

A couple of weeks ago my husband gave me a hard time for still knitting winter hats. Ha! Little did he know we'd get 18 inches of snow this week with frigid temperatures. Of course I think I'd rather take warm weather and no new hatting wearing instead! But he's been wearing his new hat all week and it brings a smile to my face, now I just need to catch him and take a picture.
I also knitted one for Michelle and her upcoming trip to Europe next week. I figured it'd be great for those still chilly nights and perhaps days. I knitted both hats from the pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts. What a great book! I also discovered while trying to take a picture of Michelle's hat I do not make a good model, so I stuck it on my oldest daughter. She's only five so it's big but you get the idea. I knitted it in Malabrigo worsted weight and I love the plum variegated color!~Leslie
