Knitting Notes

Pattern: Brownie by Woolly Wormhead
Yarn: Classic Elite Renaissance
Needles: Size 6 DPNs

My Christmas knitting is done!   And before Thanksgiving even!

I really enjoyed this pattern.    You start out knitting the brim flat, and then graft the ends together, and pick up stitches to get the crown.   The spiral effect on that was pretty fun to do, which is impressive, considering it's seed stitch based, and that is normally SO BORING!   

There's an ear flap in the pattern as well, which I skipped this time, as it brought it a little further away from the silhouettes of the hats I knit for L's parents.   (This is for my niece.)
