Late last night, I finished up my Paint By Numbers hat.
I love knitting fairisle hats. They are so much fun and not nearly as difficult as they look. I'm particularly happy with the colors in this one, which I plan on wearing later this week in Seattle, where it will hopefully be cool enough to do so. Knitting a wool hat is a bit of an act of faith when you live somewhere with temperatures still well above 90` as September draws to an end.
A neighbor, who typically knows about such things, told me while out walking his dog last night that he had heard we were going to have a very cold winter. He didn't seem to happy about it, but, such music to a knitter's ears!
