I have actually finished something!
Can you believe it?
What the heck is it? And why is it so plain? And why did it take so long to make? Who is that guy?
Pattern: Turn a Square Hat - Jarod Flood (I think it's a free Ravelry pattern....)
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool Merino in dark grey
Needles: US 7 Circulars and dpn's
Mods: I made it a bit longer before I decreased. I think 6" total.
The husband has a biggish head. It took so long because I was being lazy.
The "guy" is the husband
He wanted it plain. He likes plain. Which works for me.
Now all I have to do is finish up the son's mittens. Which I will report one mitten is complete and fits! So it won't be spring before I keep my family warm.
Then I can start something new for me!!!!! YAY!!!!

Nothing wrong with plain! My DH always wants his hats to cover his ears COMPLETELY. No matter that it's too long and looks silly.
Hooray for a FO!!

Looks great! I'm a fan of plain as well sometimes.

That is the ONLY thing my husband wants me to make. Hats hats hats hats and hats. I love the decrease on the top. The next one I make I will do that.
Oh wait I did make him a pair of socks which he said he liked.
