you know that whole "i'm not knitting anything for anyone this holiday season" mantra it seems everyone's been espousing? i was on that bandwagon. happily seated, enjoying the ride. and then i remembered that my dad's been wearing the same roll-brim hat i knit for him since the first winter i re-discovered my love for knitting - like, five years ago. (everyone got a stockinette hat that year - if you were lucky, i got around to you closer to the holiday and yours had a ribbed band rather than rolled!)
it's time for an upgrade.
this year, i'm in ohio with b for the holidays and i won't see my parents until the day after xmas, so i've plenty of time, and i'm almost done anyway. a nice delay in the airport (they couldn't find the flight crew?!!!) saw to that.
