Christmas Knitting

I got some more Christmas knitting done over the weekend (I've already knit the pair of socks).  This is The Boy Hat, a free pattern, knit in Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in the Terrarium colorway.  This colorway really reminds me of camo so I thought it would be a perfect gift for someone on my Christmas list.  I figured this out when I was using it (in the Tosh DK base) in the Neat Ripple blanket. The Vintage is a little heavier weight yarn than the Tosh DK, with more twist to it, but it's still very soft.

The pattern is extremely well written and knits up very quickly.  I started it in the late afternoon Saturday, stopped for dinner and had it finished up, ends woven in and everything long before bedtime that night.  Great TV knitting and since most males (at least the ones in this house) seem to prefer simple designs, perfect for the purpose.

BTW, if you're on my Christmas list and want something knitted, let me know what you've got in mind soon!

Might have to make 1 or 2 of those for Christmas gifts myself!
