After many hours of proofreading my HTML code, writing scripts to block banner ads on my webpage, talking to me about Visual Basic, and just generally being a computer guru, it became apparent that my friend Keith deserved a present, at the very least.  We were talking about my enthusiasm for knitting, and he mentioned that he could really use a hat:

It's made out of a sweater I found in the thrift store and dissected - the type made out of great yarn, but constructed in a really hideous way.  I worked with two strands of chenille to add bulk, and to hide any mangy spots in the yarn (chenille has a tendency to get like that if you unravel it).  I used this pattern for the hat, and then made up an intarsia pattern:

 That's awesome! I have to make one as soon as I learn intarsia.

Thanks everybody.  I really dug this project.  I think I'm going to make more of them, once I get all of my Christmas projects finished..

Yeah, technically it would be Fair Isle, wouldn't it?  I haven't been knitting long,and I still get the terminology messed up a lot.  One thing I do know, though, is that it's really important to keep that carried over yarn loose back there, or the part with a design gets all pinched up!

It looks so thick and warm!  I love the browny-green mix.  It reminds me of a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie put in a blender.

(Jealous much.)

Oh yeah, and by the way, you did a really nice job of making it look manly-man.  For some reason, my knit hats always look so girly to me.  You did a really lovely job.

(Okay, I'll just ask- can I have it?  Naw, Just kidding.)

(No, really, can I?)

That's hysterical! Grin

I bet you'd have no trouble selling those hats if you were interested in doing so... I can think of waay too many people that would get a kick out of that hat.

I was thinking that maybe I'll make a batch and see about selling them on Ebay or something..

Fun twist: you could make them into white hats, or black hats, for both sides of the spectrum.  Wink
