And suddenly..

Well, on Tuesday I cast on for a new hat for hubby (after he started this unfortunate trend of losing his home knitted hats), thinking I might as well get something tossed off my to do-list for autumn as long as the temperatures were low. 

Well, the day after, I had gotten hooked on the knitting needles, and the pattern for the hat is really easy to get caught up in (it's a pattern made by Arne & Carlos, called Hat with Space Invaders Pattern). I think this is the fifth or sixth time I've knitted this pattern (may even be 8th or 9th....). It's simple, fun and can be as simple or complex as you like.

Thursday evening and all the ends were woven in. I still need to steam it, but it is finished and fits perfectly. Almost exactly identical to the one hubby lost (I'm going to put a label on the inside, with my phone number on - which is what we usually mark the kids' clothes with). Hopefully, if lost, someone will contact us - instead of adopting it (which is what I hope is what happened).

And the temperatures? Still cool, although a little warmer. It's raining today (started after we had spent about 3 hours in Tusenfryd. Needless to say, we're all a little tired now..
