I've finished a few projects recently! Check my ravelry for more details. Here's my pride and joy, though. This past sunday I was commissioned by a patron of the local coffee joint to make them two hats and refinance their mortgage. Here is one of the hats, a basic watchcap with fisherman's rib and a little embellishment at the request of the commissioner. I'm happy with it!

It's cute! Does the embellishment signify anything or did he just want a splash of white in there?

It is a great hat!! What does the embellishment say (or does it not). It' so simple and elegant. So are you going to knit the refinancing of the mortgage too?

Its just some little rectangles darned in afterwards. He wanted something white on it to make it unique.

It's very cool!


You should be happy with it. It's a beautifully knitted hat.

Wow, I really like it. The few white stitches adds a really nice touch.

I like stitching miscellaneous things into knitting. The hat looks good.
