I finished a Christmas gift in August. How gratifying.
Mary Jane's Pithy Hat, cabled version, by Theresa Belville
Yarn: Wool of the Andes, Amber Heather, 1 skein
Needle: Knit Picks Size 7 circular
Time: 7 days
Thoughts/Mods: I only knit the hat to be about 7 inches, while the pattern called for 10-11". It's still looser than some of the hats I've made, which I like, but I didn't want to be as floppy as the pattern suggested. I also used a more subtle cable than suggested. I did C3B (sl1 back, k2). I like the way it turned out, and it fits nicely. I'm tempted to keep it for myself, but really, how many hats do I need in Houston? (Answer: as many as I want!!) I already have a couple of recipients in mind, so we'll see.

Oooh, the effects of sunshine.
