It sure got cold quick so I had my son pick out two skeins of Tender to make him a hat. He picked a Dive and Seamist. After a week or so I finished the hat!
Its a double layer hat. Basically you knit a hat with increases and knit to length and then double it and decrease. The inside has wide stripes and the outside has small stripes. I used about half of each skein. He loves the hat and wore it today when we went outside to leaf blow in the light rain, which turned into rain rain in which he was splashing water at me and I was using the leaf blower to blow it at him. We has a blast and he did not complain once about being cold! Hurray!
This is better representative of the color. My son is dying some angora yarn that I spun a while ago today in his favorite color light turquoise. He calls the yarn his fuzzy. It is going to be a scarf for him. Hopefully this will go quick! I hope it isn't too cold where you are and there will be an update this week before the holiday crazy starts to set in here!
