I have finished my niece's hat it turned out very cute. It sort of has a slanted striping going on. It should go with her snow suit very well. My mother mentioned that my father's fisherman hat that I gave him for Christmas last year is wearing through, so I am making him a new one that is a lot thicker. I have started working on it but Idecided not to take any pics of it til' it is finished. But I will tell you what yarn I decided to use for the project. I am using a Super Bulky Wool-ease Thick and Quick from Lion Brand in Charcoal. I decided to knit it in a k1,p1 ribbing so it is nice and stretchy, I am knitting long so he can roll up the brim to wherever he prefers. That is about all, I will be posting a pic soon.
