This was actually my last FO of 2013, but I didn't have a chance to blog about it before the end of the year! It was a Christmas gift for Guy. I don't often knit him things, mainly because he is one of those people that runs hot, and is always hot. Too hot for wool sweaters, too hot for mittens, etc. But you know, it's been a really cold winter, and this pattern is, in my opinion, the perfect hat pattern for a dude:
It was cold, Guy was blowing on his hands to keep warm.
Yarn: Tanis Fiber Arts Yellow Label DK in 'Charcoal'
Brixter is a lovely cabled hat with loads of texture and takes about half a skein of DK. It's not only a really quick knit, it's also very satisfying in that it keeps you interested without being too tricky that you can't watch a movie while you knit it.
This photo was taken on December 31st, when Lila was in daycare for a half day and we took the opportunity to go for coffee by ourselves. I had almost forgotten what it's like to sit in your seat the whole time and eat a croissant in peace, and not chase a little toddler around!
