Just In Time

Just finished the Inga Hat...purrrfect timing. The Sierra's have so much snow now from the last few storms. This hat is the perfect ski hat. I was a little concerned that the hat would end up too small and the braided edge would forever roll but after a gentle blocking with the steam iron it smoothed right out and the fit is great. It is snug but for a ski hat that is what you want. I am not modeling because it is Sunday and my day off...aka no makeup and straggly hair day. I used a size 3 needle throughout the entire hat. The pattern suggested doing the body in a size 5 but after reading all the comments on Ravelry about this hat being too big I decided to stick with a 3. Now the second one I am planning on making I am going to use a 3 for the braid and 5 for the body. The yarn I used is GGH Wollywasch 100% wool. I am quite pleased with this hat! Now finished with this...time to clean the house. What a mess from what the dog brought in after the storm. Lots of yard leaves and twigs.
