I did it! I finished the Brother In Law's Deathflake hat in time for Christmas. It's now known as "The Dread Pirate Jeffery". I completely love it and I'm thinking about making another one with the miles of yarn I have left.
I'm not going to publish the pattern because I didn't draw that great chart myself, but if you're interested, send me an e-mail and I'll be happy to tell you how I knitted it.
In other news, I made you a present!
How cute is that? It's called "Wink", and it's a free download for you, on Ravelry. CLICK HERE to get it.
I know it's the 11th hour, and for those who are all done with Christmas knitting, Congratulations! You are superior beings and we love you for it. For the rest of us, I offer this quick "Holy-Cow-How-Could-I-Have-Forgotten" pattern. You can seriously knit one of these in less than an hour. And no, you don't have to embroider a monogram like I did, unless you just want to. Here is a great place to find beautiful monogram patterns, if you're interested. I think it's super cute au natural, or you could add any kind of embellishment. How about applique, or a fabric ruffle? What about leather trim, or beads? Go big. You can get this done in no time flat.
Merry Christmas, Gentle Readers. I love you.
