Before I launch into a series of posts about my hat, let me give you a mitten update. Dad's mittens are done:
Pattern: from The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns by Ann Budd
Yarn: Wool Ease Denim
Needles: DPNs, US7
Time to knit: almost no time. A few subway rides, and evening here and there, and we're done.
Would I knit mittens again? And again, and again, and again.
