February Hat

Yep, I'm making up for lost posting time today!

Here's my February Hat...made with mystery yarn from some mystery sheep on some mystery farm.  The yarn still had a bit of the farm in it as I knit but once soaked in hair conditioner and washed with wool wash it fluffed up and became really nice and soft.  I made it using Elizabeth's standard worsted weight hat pattern.  That is text E, tell her that you have size 7 needles and some worsted weight-ish yarn, that you are on your way to Syracuse and you need to knit, you need her help, you need a really simple hat pattern...wait a bit and voila, she sends you the number of stitches to cast on, rib pattern, and depth.  From there I added 10% more stitches when I switched to stockinette and knit for 8" or so, decreased (again following dear E's excellent advice) and cast off.  End of story.
