That really didn't take long. The little white thread is just a running line in case I need to frog it back to before the decreases to change the height. I won't be able to try it on my friend until tomorrow. Other than that and the final tail to weave in (in case of height change), it is done!
I really think this is a handsome hat. Suits either sex. And guess what — I would have had enough Sundara worsted merino to complete this in one skein. I used 9 gm of the Ksar and I had 14 gm of the Sundara left. Mind you it was a 113-gm "100-gm" skein of Sundara yarn, so it would have been cutting it close if the true weight had been 100 gm.
But she's got a few beautiful worsted skeins left in this week's batch, so .. need a hat? You know what to do.
Someone commented today (anonymously) on a post a few back where I invited my blog readers to visit me, and said that was reason enough to leave San Diego. I'm not entirely sure if they are insulting me, insulting my blog readers, or if it's actually a compliment because it implies that 10,000,000 new people will be coming to visit San Diego. I choose to believe the latter. :-)
