I've recently finished a couple hats. My son's Snowman hat is done. Yay! I knit this for the December KAL on Ravelry, but it took me a little longer. I was planning on doing this hat anyway - so it was good timing. I opted not to try the carrot nose - since no orange yarn! Instead he's got a button nose. Quirky meets Frosty. :) I like him.

Like the button?
Second, I finished my stepdad's Christmas present - the Modern Rib Hat in Hawkeye colors. I even had this completed for the game last weekend. :) I need some better pictures so the pattern is better seen, but once again, this pattern has proven to be simple and soft. I prefer the yarn I used for this hat and my brother's hat, over the yarn I used for my Dad's hat. It's softer and not as stiff. But, on the flip side, probably not as warm!

Big on my son - but adequately fits the intended adult!
I'm now working on a Modern Rib hat for my husband. I've got it started, but I need more black - so I'm waiting for that to come. In the meantime - I'm working on the Painted Turtle hat by Susan B. Anderson. The hat is one base color, with colorful crocheted turtles adorning the hat. So I learned to crochet. Yay!
I'm doing a hat & project bag swap on Ravelry so I don't want to disclose too much information yet. But the turtles are completed, and now I'm working on the base of the hat. About 1/3 of the way finished there. I have also finally picked the toy I'm including in the project bag, found a couple cute stitch markers, and bought the yarn for the project. Anywho - once I get these two projects done, I have 2 more hats and a couple quick gifts to knit up. Then maybe my knitting will slow down a bit! haha!
