I finally had time to work on my hat this weekend. I was very dumb and thought I would use my US size 6 needles last week and started my hat. First I had my work twisted and as I was frogging it I noticed how gargantuan the hat was going to be.

There is a reason why people write a pattern a certain way.

Anyhow below is my progress over the weekend. I am using the Lion Wool and I am actually enjoing it. It is a tad bit scratchier than Cascade 220 but I think I will use it again. It is spun nicely. I am also using a slighly smaller guage than the pattern calls for now.


I am hoping to have this finished before this weekend. More to come later!
