Irene's Hat





I'm hooked on this pattern-- it's just so incredibly lovely to knit. No cables, but it ends up looking all textured, and very easy to throw together (it generally takes two leisurely days of knitting during my free moments). And the ribbed area by the ears is doubled up, which makes it extra warm for chilly winter days.

Here's my sister Irene's hat-- yarn her choosing, and I like the way it turned out. Sort of oatmealy. And somehow I am continuing my trend of wearing hats I intend to give as gifts. Oh well.

Yes, yes, yes! I have been wearing my Jane already today! Perfect for when it is only 4 degrees outside! Cute and functional... can't beat that.

I love this hat! I've been wearing it all the time around the house, and it is so warm and comfy. Robbie says that I look like a hippie, which he likes, too. :)
