Jonathan was very pleased when I gave him his new hat.
Pattern: Turn A Square by Jared Flood
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden and Gedifra English Tweed
Needles: KnitPicks interchangeable circulars, sizes 5 and 6

He actually really likes it! He's been wearing it almost constantly since I gave it to him, which he says is so that I'll knit him yet more things. I'm telling you, Knitted Gift Starvation is the way to go. He's given me nothing but total appreciation.
My favorite part of it, of course, is the crown:
I did block this hat (as suggested in the pattern), because the raglan decreases really do benefit from a little soak and tug treatment.
I'm totally in love with the yarn that I used. While the base color looks like a crunchy, hearty tweed, it's actually a deliciously soft merino/angora blend, with nary and itch in sight (or...feel?) I want to buy some of every color that my yarn shop has for future hat ideas.
Now that I've finished with the hat, one would think that I'd be charging ahead with one of the sweaters...
Never assume anything with a pregnant girl.
