Party hat

I used my handspun "80's party dress" superwash corriedale from spunky's December fiber club shipment to create this "party hat" for DS.





It seems to be warming up here in AZ now, so not sure if he will really wear it, and I don't think it will fit next year, but I just couldn't resist. It is so cute! He loves it, has been wearing it around the house all day.

The pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, and is "Kim's Hat's", the earflap version. My yarn is bulkier than that required, so I followed the Babies size of the pattern to come out with the measurements of a child size. I got the thing done in 1 night, it was a very fast knit!

Can you live in Mesa, be into fiber and NOT have discovered Fiber Factory?!? It is like a mecca for all fiber obsessed in the area. Um...yes, I fall into that category!
