Is it still wip it Wednesday somewhere? Mid Pacific? I'm posting this one anyway. Last month I was flapping my mouth offering to make handknits for family members . Poking around on Ravely, as one does, I came across a hat , and was sitting there chortling when I saw that it had over 1000 versions. That drew my son's attention. He looked. He said he needed one.
And so, I am knitting the Fornicating Reindeer Hat. (That a Ravelry link. Here's a particularly nice one on a blog. )It is mind boggling that there are 1028 different versions of this hat prancing around the world. Go look. I know, it's a little tacky but it's also funny. He may have been 5 years old and waiting for a sweater with penguins (who were not fornicating) the last time he was this excited about something I was knitting. Plus, I am enjoying the colorwork.
The yarn? it's from Plymouth , superwash merino. Because I know my customers. . ••••••••••••••
Need a new wip yourself? I just saw this hat pattern, Empire. Cute. Fast. Not boring.
