Election Hat!

I have this thing with hats, namely that I hate them. Or let's say I hate wearing them. I think I look stupid in most of them, although I realize that they're really nice to have when it gets cold. So I keep knitting them, at least one a winter, in my eternal quest to find a hat I don't hate. While watching very exciting election coverage last night I knitted this (well, the vast majority of this, I started it Monday night).

Yes, I am a lazy blogger and instead of using a camera I use Photo Booth....

The yarn is some cone yarn I picked up many years ago from Webs. It's way bulky which I don't really like, and it's 100% wool so it's rather not so soft, and I have a ton of it that I don't know what to do with. I don't even know what the stuff is called.... The white is Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool. This is a lovely knit, very quick, easy, and I like it! We'll see if I wear it. Now to wait for this unusually warm weather to end.... no, I don't mean that, don't end, stay as long as you'd like.

I don't know why, but I love earflap hats. They look silly on me, but something about them makes me happy :)

I'm with Hannah - what pattern did you use?

It looks really warm. (Which wool has a tendency to do.)
