Kureyon Ribbed Hat

Ribbed Cap, from Caps & Hats Two: Vogue Knitting on the Go
Noro Kureyon [100% wool], 1 skein
color: 163
US7 (pattern called for 8's but hat was coming out much too large, so had to rip and and redo with 7's)
one size fits most
November 2005
The single skein of Kureyon was just barely enough to make this hat. I was running on fumes at the end.
I've never used Kureyon before and I really like the color I picked, but I will not rush out to get more -- at least, not for a project in ribbing. The yarn is a little scratchy and rather uneven and it left my left middle finger kind of sore after knitting for a while. I normally hold the yarn in my right hand, but I find that my ribbing is neater (specifically the purl stitch after a knit stitch) and a little faster when I knit continental. However, this was just painful with this yarn because I guess I was squeezing my fingers to get better tension or something. By the end of the project I had a big groove in my middle finger.

This hat was a Christmas present for Nephew#1. I had to tie him up to get a picture of him in it.

OK, no. Really he's just a weirdo who likes to be tied up. Anyhow, he loves his hat and that makes me a happy auntie.
