Another ball of stash yarn, gone. Another hat for the Xmas pile; check.
Pattern: Loop d'Loop by Chris Bylsma (scroll down for pattern link)
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay worsted weight wool, 1 skein exactly
Needles: size 9
Mods: no dropping of the edge loops. I like it better, but I still could have casted on fewer stitches. It's a wee bit tall.
(it's after midnight. what am I doing? why was it so important to finish this hat?)
