I took a break...

...from the fair isle sweater I'm making for my son and made him this much more needed hat. I participated in an Indie Dyers swap on Ravlery and got this Merino/Silk/Cashmere yarn in the mail, it was the perfect red to go with my sons coat, I did think twice about the yarn fiber and if a little boy was worthy of such luxury...but of course, I love knitting with it and it so perfectly matches his coat and how often do you really need to wash a hat anyway? I wash almost everything I knit by hand to extend its life, after all I spend countless hours making these things and want them to last as long as possible, perhaps so my grandchildren can wear them some day.

It was a pleasure to knit with this lovely yarn and color, the hat will fit him for many years, and I'm glad because I have a list of other things I want to make, with a few things for me included and never enough time as the list is always growing!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a fun day with all of my family.
