Halfdome


This is a picture of me in a hat I knit this summer. It was actually cool enough this week that I was able to wear it to work one morning. And on Friday, I wore it when Jeff and I went out to eat. The place we were eating only had outside seating, so it was a good thing I had it.

The pattern came from the Summer 2006 issue of Knitty. The designer is Jesse Loesberg. In the Fall 2006 issue, he has a sweater that I'm going to tackle someday.

I really enjoyed knitting this. It went fast, and it has a dork factor of nil, which can't be said of a lot of hat patterns out there. I even went with what for me is a pretty bright color!

  3. Yeah -- the joke with all my knitting friends is that he likes any color of yarn as long as it's black, grey, brown, and sometimes dark green. Not exactly true, but I do lean that way.

    Thanks for the support!
