Well, I did a lot of things I've never done before with this project.  It's not a complicated project but I'm still a novice knitter (though I think I'm learning at a good clip).

1. it was my first time knitting in the round

2. it was my first time changing colors

3. it was my first time using dpn's
and..
4. it was my first time picking up stitches.

I'm pretty damn proud of myself personally  Wink  It's a present for my friend who is a browncoat.  I've never seen the show or the movie personally but she's told me aaalllll about it  Roll Eyes  so I know she'll get a kick out of this.  And she's going to need a good hat since she's marrying a Brit and moving to England!

I had to use 3 different yarns to get the colors I wanted.  The orange is Lion Brand 100% wool, the yellow is crappy acrylic and the red is Red Heart Soft.  I DO NOT recommend Red Heart Soft.  It was HORRIBLE to knit with, splits-ville city I tell you.  But it is soft.

Sorry for the ramble, here's the pic.  My lovely and goofy-ass husband is modeling.  Even our cat thinks he's a doof  Grin  



 I used the tute from here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=19076.0

Thanks for looking!!

Great job!

If I see your husband walking down the street, I'll know that he's a man not afraid of anything!  Wink
