My Husband Thinks He’s A Ninja

Last year I knit Caleb two hats.  He wears them constantly (sometimes he wears both hats at once) and I’m thrilled that he enjoys them as much as he does.  A few weeks ago, Mickael wandered into the kitchen while I was cooking and wanted to know if he (Mickael) had a black hat like Caleb’s green one.  This means Mickael wanted a hat like that.  (After 20 years of marriage, you figure a few things out.  Like if Mickael asks for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, he’s really asking for a peanut butter only sandwich.  That one took a while to figure out.)

Caleb’s green hat was knit using this pattern and Madelinetosh Vintage in Terrarium (which tends to resemble camo pretty well).  I couldn’t find any Vintage in any of the Madelinetosh blacks, but I found the 80/10/10 base in Onyx on Madelinetosh’s website.  Once I got the yarn, it only took a couple hours of knitting and his hat was finished.  Knitting a black hat is easier than black socks.  It would be nice if Mickael wanted hand knits in colors other than black though.

Just so you know, right now the hat is pulled in on itself because of the ribbing.  I don’t block hats because they need to be a bit snug.  Once Mickael starts wearing it, it will size to his head.
