More Christmas Gifts

I just finished the "first" hat of A Warm Hat by Elizabeth Zimmerman. This is a Christmas gift for my stepson Ryan. He is in Shanghai opening a new Lawry's Prime Rib Restaurant (he is a chef and a good one too) and will be back here in the states the middle of March....then off to go skiing for a week at Mammoth Mountain. I promised him this hat for Christmas but never made it in time for him to open before he left. This will be perfect for spring skiing!

I have the second one to make next. I think instead of a complete reverse of colorway and fairisle pattern, I am going to keep it simple with a few stripes at the bottom and a solid body. The hat only took a couple of days to make but I really don't feel like repeating the fuss again. So simple solid it will be.

I used Knit Picks Telemark yarn. This is the first time I have used this is okay, just okay. Not in love with it. The "hand" is a little rough but I think it will wear well for a hat.

Hmmmm....the spell check isn't working. Sorry for any typos!
