The Last of the Holiday Knits

IMG_2507

It took five hours of last-minute, Christmas Eve Day knitting, but I finished it! Another Koolhaas for Snowboarder.

I think I promised to give this to him before Sock Camp in April. Then before Sock Summit. Then after Sock Summit. Then I think he just gave up. Once in awhile he would refer to the girlfriend who used to knit hats for him. He was totally surprised!! A perfect Christmas gift!

And a gorgeous, sunny but cold, Christmas Day!!

Wishing you all a warm and woolly holiday!

Yay for Snowboarder! Girl, whew, you sure knit like the wind on it! Got a chuckle about the "girlfriend that used to knit him hats ;)"

Wait, didn't he get some other hats in between? Hee.

Merry Christmas to you, Snowboarder & your families!

I soo love that hat. I really need to buy the pattern...you sure got it nice and snug for him. Hmph...I need to learn your sizing trick! My Biker friends want tighter hats.

The hat looks great on him! Clearly, you waited until Christmas because the weather would be perfect for a nice hand-knit hat.

Wishing you and Snowboarder a merry Christmas. And your families, furry and otherwise.

Nice! I'll take your word it was cold....the sun and palm trees juxtaposed with a warm hat had me confused ;-)

Well done! Grace under pressure. I would have crossed my crosses backwards or something. Looks great.

Happy holidays!
