Scott has a new hat!!! I actually knitted a fair isle hat for him. I am very pleased with how it turned out and have everything lined up to knit one for DD.

I am so proud of myself. Now to find an easy pattern to put my new found skill to the test.

Below is the last KAL for Shirley'sKnittingKnook that I did. It is a witches hat for Halloween. Scott thought it was "a surfer dude" that is a direct quote.
