It gets done-eventually

This is a project that has been hanging around for some time.  It was a quick knit, but halfway through doing the top, I ran out of yarn.  I eventually bought some more, but then had to wait for the opportunity to finish it when the recipient wasn't going to be breathing down my neck.
It was fun to make the tassels and the twisted cord for the ties.  Hopefully, they won't be dropping off any time soon. 

This is so soft and warm, knitted using Rowan Cocoon, a merino wool and kid mohair mix. With the colder mornings we are getting, I don't think it will be long before this will be needed to keep a little man warm on his paper round.

He will definitely appreciate that, especially if this winter is anything like the last.

I like the style of that hat but I do not go out enough in the winter to wear one. I am like a bear and try to hibranate but it never really works.

Oh, I like that! Can't wait for cold weather. We have had almost 70 days of over 100 degrees! I miss my jackets! lol

That'll be sooner rather than later as it has become very autumnal very quickly this year.

I don't think it will be that long until you're breaking out this super cute hat. And perhaps you should waterproof it too if recent weather is anything to go buy.
