Let's catch up with some of my finished objects from this past 6 months...
The first finished object or as we call them in our podcast "Masterpieces" I'd like to share with you is the Sockhead hat. I made this my dad for his 80th birthday, which was on May 32nd, 2014! He requested a thin hat for nights in Panama when it gets cooler a while back but it took me a bit to find the perfect yarn/pattern/inspiration to get this project started and completed. I'm so excited how it came out and I love love love this picture of him in it.
Pattern: Sockhead Hat
by Kelly McClure
Yarn: The Unique Sheep Verve in the insecta gradiance colorway
Cast on date: May 16th, 2014
Finished date: May 28th, 2014 Just in time for his birthday!
Notes: This pattern says to knit for a bit longer than I did. I didn't want it to be slouchy on my father and after I finished it I was worried it wouldn't fit it. I was so glad when he tried it on and it fit perfectly! I enjoyed this pattern as it was simple and quicker than I thought. I love knitting with sock yarn so I may have to make a couple more of these for others in my family.
Have you finished any knitting projects lately?
