My father saw Matt's hat over the Christmas weekend, and he wanted one for himself. So, I took his measurements, left him with yarn-buying instructions, and he and my mother went off to WEBS. They delivered this to me on Saturday:
It's more of the Classic Elite Gatsby that I used for Matt's hat in my second-choice colorway (well, it was a second choice for me, Matt never had any doubts about which colorway he wanted to use).
So, I have another chance to knit with this lovely, soft yarn, another opportunity to work with a pattern that I enjoy, and an excuse to join another knit-along. Good deal!
