Warm Wooly Hat in Progress


Over the weekend, I started Caleb's Nordic Skier Hat (the kit is here, scroll down). The curly thing at the bottom of the hat is the cotton lining band so it doesn't itch him. Once I've completed the hat, I'll sew that to the inside. If you look carefully at the top near the needles, you can see that I'm just past the ski. I figure I'm around halfway done since the top has decreases and I'm through with the cotton section, which seems to take longer to knit. This morning he had to wear his polar fleece hat to school, but hopefully later this week he will be properly attired in wool, as all knitters kids should be. He hasn't told me if he wants a plain top, a pom pom, or braids for the top of his hat. I'm personally leaning more towards the plain top or possibly the braids, but I'll leave it up to him. These kits are really fun to work, a nice price, and the fact that you can choose your own colors with them makes them even more fun.

I love that hat, it is a fun knit. I have made two and I think I made the braids for them. I can't make pompoms that look good. I end up cutting and cutting till nothing is left.

Love the color you chose.

You're knitting the cotton lining at the same time? Is the hat double-knitted? Interesting...
