It took longer than expected, but I can now announce that the woolly hat which I started a couple of days ago has been completed! It was a really good experience following the pattern in Stich 'N Bitch - I had ambitiously set about making a hat for myself last winter, without a pattern (and being a beginner knitter too!), and the result was hilarious: I looked like a garden gnome at best.
I'm really pleased with the way the colours in the stripes turned out, I used two different wools (both Wendy Chameleon Chunky) - a blue-green mix and a red-orange mix. It might be a bit colourful for Phil, but he seemed pleased with it. The proof will be in the wearing!
I was so excited that I forced it onto his head while he was in the bath, which explains his less than impressed face... Maybe I'll get a better photo in the coming days. :)
Happy Winter Solstice & Merry Christmas
