Hmmm, headless hats look a funny shape, don't they?!
As with his socks, he was extremely excited and grateful for his hat... There was a small amount of dancing in front of the mirror, followed by a little song... No, really *laughs* I won't embarrass him by recounting it here, but it was to the tune of "the sun has got his hat on" and was very cute.
It's quite hard to take a picture of hat-on-head when the wearer doesn't want his face in the picture *rolls eyes*
As you can see from the picture, he likes his hats slightly shorter than most people, which has the excellent result of leaving me enough yarn for a (non-matching!) hat of my own. Following Tink's suggestion yesterday, I used the decreases from the Watchman's Hat pattern, which I think look really cool:
I love the way the varied colours in the yarn seem to spiral.
Pattern: 2x2 rib, shorter than most hats, Watchman's hat decreases
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted, in Marine (love this yarn!)
Love?: Oh yeah, he seems to love it *laughs* He refused to take it off for some time in fact ;)
