More Kool....

Koolhaas

I finished up Snowboarder's Koolhaas while I was in New Orleans. The conversation went a bit like this...


Koolhaas

I said, "I finished your hat babe." He said, "Cool. You know how long I've been waiting for that!" Seriously.


Kool Snowboarder

But he does love it! So its hard to resist not knitting him more!

My fave

This pictures is my favorite.

Pattern: Koolhaas

Yarn: 1 skein Madelinetosh Worsted, colorway Graphite, from Woolgirl

Needles: US 6 & US 7

Notes: Knit the larger size. It fits perfectly.

Now back to the Christmas knitting.

Happy Knitting!

Alright, I guess the fact that he loves it outweighs the comment. He
DID smile nicely for the pictures, too.

Too Kool for school! I love the way it turned out--all tonal-y. Mucho fantastico!

Donna said...

I like that hat. And he wears it so well!

Our honeys are usually the last ones to get the knits. Not too sure why that happens!

Way kool.

I think DH caught Snowboarder's disease. He keeps asking me are you working on my socks? Heh.

Disco said...

You are becoming quite the photographer. I love the pic where he's touching the hat.

Another gorgeous knit, well done :0)

It's so nice to have someone to knit for who actually appreciates your knitting. He definitely looks like an adoring fan. And so photogenic too!
