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.
