Weekend FO

Mother Hand's Christmas hat

It's quite literally blowing a gale tonight and I wasn't home in time to get a good shot of this in natural light so you'll just have to lump it I'm afraid - I've been trying to get a good picture for the last five minutes and have run out of patience!

Also there is something seriously wrong with Blogger and its picture uploader. It's almost as if they want me to use Flickr instead....

Pattern: Star-Crossed Sloutchy beret (Rav link) - third outing for this one and I actually used a smaller needle for the ribbing, for once!
Yarn: Knit Picks Andean Silk - I really love this yarn; so soft, and has a lovely sheen about it in the finished article.
Needles: 5.5mm and 6.5mm - I reduced needle size due to the thinner yarn.
Mods: None, other than the needle size. Hence, the hat does not slouch the way it is supposed to; but it's for Mother Hand, and I think it will suit her quite nicely.

I am officially, therefore, halfway towards completing the first of my December goals. And I'm halfway through Sib's girlfriend's hat, so it looks like I'm going to make it.

I also got very drunk at Friday night's Christmas party, so you can see I am really dedicated to my goals this month.
