Tic Tac Tocque

I knit this hat using the Small Mock Brocade Block that Scott posted with his socks a few days ago. It's a fun and easy pattern- thanks, Scott.

My Saturday Offering

I knit this one yesterday to celebrate the fact that the sun rose in the east. I'm running out of rationales, so I guess I'll just keep knitting for the hell of it.

Whale Watcher's Hat

This is a hat I knit yesterday, and decided to give it a Maine-flavored name. Let me know when y'all are sick of them, and I'll start knitting underwear (if that model is available).

The fun continues as I transfigure stash to hats. This one's off the top of my head for on the top of my head; or maybe I'm just off my head.
