Since the last hat I made my husband stretched out of shape when he wore it to shovel snow last year (a version of the Irish Hiking Hat, in one of the Cascade yarns), I wanted to make him a new one for his birthday. I only had a few days to get it together, so I went to Michaels for some Lion Brand. I totally lucked out with the colors. They had exactly what I needed for a VA Tech hat (his alma mater). Funny how in these pictures he is wearing a Penn State shirt. His parents are PSU alums, so we have quite the mixture of collegiate clothing at our house. Of course no FO is complete without the Bean's modeling pic:
Don't you just love the touch of "cheetah" belt. Goes great with the hat.
