Pattern: "Tundra Hat" from the Knit Knack Kit. This is a fun and handy little kit, though the patterns are very basic, I love that you can grab the one card with your pattern on it and go, rather than carrying around a whole book.
Yarn: Bernat Soft Boucle, 98% acrylic, 2% polyester, color 06163 "dark rose." I used less than 1 skein at 5oz/skein.
Needles: Size 8 Plymouth 8" bamboo double points
Finished: December 30, 2005
Notes: I ended up doubling up the yarn to make it thicker and I really love the way this turned out. It's a beautiful dark wine color. It wound up a little on the large size, even after a trip in the dryer and even though I shortened it from what the pattern said, but I still love it. I plan to make a matching scarf, though I'm not sure whether I'll double it or go to smaller needles. I'm worried about running out of yarn. I have one skein and maybe a third left. I'll try for a better picture when I have a less camera shy model. :)
