A New Hat

Last year, as you might remember, I knit the boys coordinating dinosaur hats. Owen lost his over the holidays and I finally got around to knitting him a replacement. I started it on Wednesday because the weather was getting a little cooler. I made great progress and was getting ready to go to bed on Thursday night when one of those weather update commercials came on saying it was supposed to be 22 degrees on Friday!!! I stayed up until 11 (so late, I know!) finishing up! The hat turned out super cute and fits great! The recipient was very grateful! I told him the elves finished it up for me, which he didn't believe for a minute! Unfortunately, it ended up being at least 55 degrees on Friday! Oh, well! Winter is on its way... At least now we're prepared!
By the way, the pattern is called Roar by Kate Oates and the hat was knit in Cascade 220 Superwash and the trim was knit inDream in Color Classy on size 7 US needles.
