First FO of 2011: Morgan

The hubby was complaining. We've had some cold snaps this winter, which only helped to emphasize that the thatch on his roof was getting thin. "My head is cold," he said, which provided me with the perfect excuse to finally make Morgan after it's been on my Ravelry queue ever since it appeared on Knitty.

Done up in Rowan Felted Tweed, I think it came out quite spiffy.

From the side:

And from the front:

Knitting this was an act of faith in many places, as when I read the pattern I couldn't imagine how parts of it could possibly work. So I said, "Oooookaaaay," and just followed directions exactly as they were written. Except for getting the faux seam inside-out the first time I tried it (by not quite following instructions exactly), everything else fell into place. I cut the peak stiffener out of a large yogurt tub, so it already had a curve on it.

When it was done, hubby put it on and didn't take it off the rest of the day.

Looks great! I should check out that pattern, as it looks like a style of hat that my husband might actually wear.
