I took a break from sweater shenanigans to knit up another of my Christmas projects. I've had my eye on Knitty's Fish Hat for some time and I have a penchant for knitting novelty hats as Christmas presents. This year I have a nephew type person who likes to fish so I finally had my excuse.
I dug up some hand spun that was waiting for the right project, bought some Briggs and Little Soft spun for contrast and now I have this:
All it needs is some white felt for eyes and it is done. I'm hoping to find time on Sunday to buy felt and sew eyes and then this guy can be crossed off my list for good.
If the recipient doesn't like it, I'd gladly take it back and wear it everywhere. It is just such a cool and weird hat.
