I’m making this for my Mother-In-Law for Christmas. She always appreciates hand-knits and she likes slouchy hats, so I think she will really like this.

I got the yarn in trade from JennieKuz. I knitted a hat for her to give her DH, and she sent me two skeins of Malabrigo Silky Merino :)

Cast on 11/11/12, then realized that somehow I don’t have a size 9 16” circ. As I was lamenting having to go to the craft store to buy a crappy cheap needle, DH suggested “why don’t you go to Yarnings?” (my LYS). I was going to ask who he was and what he had done with my DH, but at that point, I decided I didn’t care - he was obviously the improved version!

11/14/12 -Finished at knitting group, just have to weave in the ends. I was nervous toward the end that I would run out of yarn, but I ended up having a few yards left.

11/15/12 - Ends woven in, ready for Christmas! Yay!
