This is Big Matt's Christmas hat.
You'll note that it's after Christmas Day but still within the 12 Days of Christmas. Barring catastrophe, I stand a good chance of finishing it before the Epiphany.
The kids are working on a lapbook on the 12 Days of Christmas so that's what we're spending time reading and working on currently.
I'm reading a werewolf romance on the Nook. It's embarrassing what books I sometimes find entertaining. That being said, I've never been able to stomach a Nicholas Sparks or your common "beach read". If I'm going to read a romance it has to have werewolves or vampires or be set in historical time.
A couple notes on the Bus Hat. It looks different than the original pattern because I started, followed the pattern for several inches, purled a row, continued in pattern for the same length then folded it up and joined the working row to the cast on row. That made a double think band that will give Matt some extra warmth on his ears. I'm using Wool of the Andes in Fedora. I have a lot of this yarn and colorway in my stash in hopes to make him a sweater. I haven't made him a sweater and I expect that I didn't order enough of the yarn to really do so. So, I'm using it up for other items and will make him a sweater with something different. Eventually.
