Koolhaas that Rocks!!
Pattern: Koolhaas by Jared Flood (ravelry project link)
Needles: size US 6 and US 8
First, Snowboarder wants me to thank everyone for all the nice comments! I think you all made him blush. He insists its the knitting. Although when I showed him my Koolhaas that Rocks tonight, the first thing he said, well after how cute it was, was, "My hat got 24 comments!" Too funny. Tonight was the first time he got in on the photo shoot from the photographer side. He's a much easier model (e.g., "Fix your hair. Wait no look over here. Etc.").
Second, I love this hat for many reasons. Probably most because its made with STR and whenever I knit something other than socks with it, it makes me happy. It helps explain the stash a bit more :) The STR mediumweight doubled knits up nice and thick and I made the men's size (thinking that Snowboarder's hat in Dream in Color Classy just barely fit me). Of course, I probably would have been fine with the smaller size. This hat is a wee bit big, but who cares! I love it!! And the color. Wow!
Okay, now Rowan, Snowboarder and I all have new hats. I think Little Guy may need one for his birthday next week. But I am going to try to focus on some bigger projects in the next few weeks (like my Blanket that Rocks!).
