A dear friend sent me the link to a darling-looking hat earlier this week. It is called the Little Gnome Knitted Peaked Hat. Since I was at a rather low spot I spent five hours the next day and knitted up the hat. The next morning I was awake at 3 AM (the cinnamon bun day) so I spent another hour doing the finishing-up work. The hat is cute but I do not see lots more of them in my future.
Here is the hat with the beginning knitting done and cast off the needles.
This is the hat with the back seam sewn up and all the knitting (neck band added after back seaming) done.
This is the completed Little Gnome Knitted Peaked Hat project. Cute, but I will only be making this for precious babies after this time. Well, all babies are precious, but because it took me so long, what I mean is that I will most likely not use this pattern for my use-up-the-stash-as-quickly-as-possible projects.
