So I've been busy trying to complete the baby blanket I was commissioned to knit. Here it is finally!:

Since that "big" project was done, I had an explosion of little projects that I wanted to do, and so I knitted up this hat while I was watching the premier of season 5 for Lost.
I liked it but decided two strands of this yarn were too bulky and one strand made the hat too thin (it's made with one and I can see the little Professor's head peaking through the holes). I decided to get different yarn and try it with the recommended two strands. I also knit it in the round this time, instead of on the recommended straight needles and then sewing up a seam (which i completely loathe doing). This is how it turned out:
Very awesome, I think, not because I knitted it, just because it's a really easy project that turns out totally awesome. Took only about an hour to do. Too bad the Professor lost it in the grocery store the very next day :o(
Dear Mommy, I'm sorry I lost my hat. I just get too hot sometimes. Please make me another one. Love the Professor
