This was a very quick and enjoyable knit. I used the same yarn as I used for my Central Park Hoodie, so now I have a nice matching hat for it. I think I'll use some of the rusty orange Cascade 220 I got from Lambtown USA to make a second one for my SIL.
The pattern was well-written (I was using the SnB Superstar book, so there was no chart or different sizes.) and I did well just printing off a copy and scratching off rows as I went. It was very easy to keep track of where I was and I love the finished object.
I do have to block it.
I took a sexy photo for you guys, too:
Word of advice: do not wear your Gretel tam like this.
