Here's my final try at posting a pic of that dang hat.
Every morning when I walk my kids to school, we go past a kid on safety patrol who's not wearing a hat, so I made him one. Here's a picture of my son modeling it. Basic, but warm!
Just back from my foray into the heartland of Oklahoma. It was wonderful to meet Okknitguy - we had a fabulous dinner at a Mexican restaurant together. We didn't make it to the yarn store while I was there, so I will have to save that for my next trip.
However, I'm very pleased with a new book that I found while I was there: Mason Dixon Knitting, the Curious Knitter's Guide, by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne. Wonderful stuff, light hearted, good pitures, and a great way to knock anyone out of a creative slump. I highly recommend it. Put it on your list for the Holidays!
