noggin warmer

Finished this quick knit hat for Scott last night. He likes it fine, but told me he really wants one like Leah's. But I want to start my Philosopher's Wool Tradition cardigan today, so I told him he's going to just have to make do, or he could knit his own. Interestingly, he watched the Philosopher's Wool video with me this morning, so he just might be thinking about picking up the needles. Wouldn't that be cool?! When he showed mild interest in my cross stitch 15 years ago, he finally decided to give that a try and ended up sweeping blue ribbons for Best of Cross Stitch, Best of Needlework, and Best of Show at the Eastern States Exposition!

His preference in wool hats doesn't matter right now anyway, since we're having this string of spring-like days that made for a beautiful romp at Mystic Aquarium with friends yesterday. We haven't been there since our membership expired a few months ago, but admission's free this month with Wolf Pack hockey ticket stubs (of which we have 14!), so it was fun to see the changes at the aquarium since this summer and enjoy having the place practically to ourselves.

Stats on this project: Pattern from Men Knit, but I don't remember if it's in issue 1 or 2. Yarn is mostly from Green Mountain Spinnery, with a stripe or two of yarn we picked up at Plimoth Plantation. Posted by Picasa
