I finished the first of the 5 (?) hats I need to knit for christmas, and yes my brother does know he's getting it for christmas!
Yarn: North hampton bulky
Needles: Size 9 circs
I love this pattern. I used up some handspun scraps and just some bulky yarn. I really liked the bulky version of northhampton, though I would use a size 10 or 11 next time. I have to make another for my sister and I'll cast on for that tomorrow, it doesn't take very long when I get down to it, I just have to cast on! I have finished Grandpop's driving cap but have not blocked, or seamed it. I haven't really had the time to sit down and think about it!
