FO: Bubba's hat

For the first time this year, I got a knitting project done in a reasonable amount of time!

My brother's Christmas present, which I decided on a hat, is completed. Believe your ears, my friends, this IS an FO post!!

 I am so please with how it turned out. I made a couple of mistakes, but nothing disastrous and I think my brother is going to love it!!


(pictures are on the phone is being weird and won't upload them but as soon as they have uploaded then I will post!!)

Yarn: Red Heart Soft Yarn in Black

Needles: Circular US10.5

Size: About 7 inches from crown to bottom of brim.  

Modifications: Knit on one circular needle with magic loop method instead of on DPNs. 

Who it is for: My bro. 

What I learned while knitting this project: That I can totally knit hats! And that hats are totally fun to knit! 

What I was doing/Where I was while knitting this project: I sat in my project chair in my room enjoying the fact that I'm almost done with my first semester at Cameron University. 

How long: Approximately 6 hours total, over 3 days. I cast on Monday and knit all the way down to the brim; yesterday and today I finished the brim and cast off.

Happy Scarf

Hey check me out! I took a picture of me knitting. Hey, I had some knitting to take a picture of. Hey, I updated my Ravelry project page and linked it to this blog post that I'm posting.

Since today was my last day of classes for the fall semester I am feel all sorts of motivated. I have accomplished more today than I have in any one day in quite a while. I got some laundry switched over this morning before I even left the house, I left early so I could print some stuff out at the library, I ate breakfast, then I attended classes where I kicked booty, and now all of this knitting stuff. I'm amazing. So are you, Valry.

Fair warning....this scarf will not be completed until next Christmas. So you can expect an FO post in about 2013-ish. ;)

Plus I actually need to take a break from this to cast on my brother's Christmas present, which I have no idea what that might be at this point. Wish me luck.

Anyway I thought I would share a picture and a Ravelry linky link. :)
