This is my first real post, apologies for having to link to the pictures. If I ever get enough posts I'll come edit it.

I made this toque a year or more ago for my boyfriend who loves Superman.

It took me forever. I knit it in the round on dpns with not a lot of color experience. Made the chart myself by printing a chart and then printing the picture onto it. I had to keep going back and forth instead of truly doing a round. It was a mix of intarsia and fair isle (I think.. I still don't entirely know what I'm doing when it comes to colors that aren't stripes). It is kind of a mess inside...

He loves it though and this year got a job on Smallville. I thought he'd feel silly wearing it to work but he doesn't and always comes home and tells me about all of the compliments he got that day. Tom Welling told him "nice hat"! He says that if I made more he'd be able to sell them to people there but I really don't have the patience to do it again.

I hope I did this right and I hope everyone likes it!

Awesome! You did a great job, I don't have the patience or skill when it comes to DPNs.  Roll Eyes Grin How cool is it that your boyfriend works on Smallville, must be a exciting job for a fan. I have a brother who is a huge Superman/Smallville fan.
