FO... and my face!

I finished off the cotton hat, knitted on size 1 needles. It was going to be way too big, but a wash and dry seemed to help out a bit. I still think 165 or 170 stitches would've been better rather than the 180 in the round. Next time.

We had quite a bit of snow yesterday... the second pic is the hat sitting on about 4 inches of the pretty stuff in our back yard.

A couple of us from MWK met up yesterday for about 1 1/2 hours at a local coffee shop. I think we're going to call ourselves "Mile Guy Knitters". If anyone's ever in town (Denver) look us up!

What size needles was the face done on? :)

Seriously, though, great hat - Connecticut has also had its first taste of winter. Bleh - needs more salt.
