Quickie

Just a little quickie for the PumpkinBoy's head. It was making him a hat that got me to pick up the needles for the 1st time in forever at about this time last year. Luckily, I'm a little more skilled than I was back then. When he saw me working on it, he asked what it was, and when I told him it was a hat for him, he was very excited. He wore it for hours inside this morning after I gave it to him, and insisted on wearing it each time we went out of the house today. So nice to have such a simple knit so well appreciated.

Project Specs:
Pattern: Tychus, Knitty Summer `05
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver, variegated blue and white
Needles: Denise #9
Notes: Cute and clever pattern. Did only 4 "wedges" for his smaller head. This yarn is awful (but I had some lying around), and held double for this, it is really really bulky. I will most likely re-knit this for him using wool or a wool blend.
