Fast hat!

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. :-)

I love that hat! It's beautiful!!

(Eh, they can stick it. Maybe we can make San Diego the Knitting Capital of the World. All knitters move to San Diego!! All non-knitters move out! Um...but we can keep our non-knitting spouses/partners and children.)

...or they want an excuse to come visit you.

Lovely hat! I want to make one too now :D. You knit amazingly fast by the way. Do you knit continental?
If I ever go anywhere near San Diego I'll make sure to pop in... in fact I might be going to a conference in the US in November, maybe there will be time for a stopover!

Have fun skiing! I'm rubbish at anything like that but can see that it's fun if you're less of a wuss than me.

I agree with the second anonymous, they want to move away so that they can come visit. I love those blues in the hat. I'll have to check out that yarn (next year).

That's a great hat. And such a smart idea to leave in a lifeline in case adjustments are needed. I'll have to remember that one!

Sorry. I guess communicating via internet is prone to misunderstanding. Which explains many things about my own life.

Well, I made note of it and although I probably wouldn't impose on you I *certainly* would look you up!
