Then you knit this thing that looks like a two-headed hat. Mine is about 19" long from tip to tip:
When you're done, you tuck one half into the other half, and you get two hats out of one thing. It's super thick and smooshy and warm. I got my favorite hat model to try it on this morning before school:I probably should have made it a tiny bit longer so that I would have more cuff. I thought it was longer, but I guess I was wrong. Still, this will do nicely for winter. I might not have to cuff it at all on me.
Now all the yarn I purchased at MDSW 2008 is knit up. Hooray! I feel pretty good about that.
Next hat: Habitat. Maybe I can swatch the handspun tonight to see if I have the right needles and can get an acceptable gauge. K is coming to visit in 9 days, and we plan to knit Habitat together, in person!
