Friends, as the warm weather disappears and we settle into Autumn, I've started focusing on my knitting plans for the colder months. I thought it was only proper to make something for my handsome fellow/roommate/Man Candy, Josh.
Of course, it had to be a Tardis Beanie.
It's a rather appropriate cap, considering we met at a Doctor Who event May 4th and drew a Tardis picture together (oh yeah, I totally blogged about it at the time)
Josh said the hat filled his two hearts with joy (#adorkable). He's even slept in it (which is a sign of success, right?)
I used Spud and Chloe sweater yarn, which worked out well and has enough stretch to to be comfortable for Josh. The colorwork also makes it incredibly warm around his ears - perfect for cycling in the Chicago wind.
I knit it while on the bus and train, so as to surprise him once it was done. It was a rather easy pattern, aside from anchoring the working yarn and making sure there was enough stretch for the blue and grey between colorwork sections. I find that since starting on the Catherine jacket, I am really enjoying colorwork and I see myself rocking some Fair Isle in a few years.
In the meantime, though, I'll be content to work on geektastic gifts. After all, there is a Dalek hat pattern out there... :)
Have a marvelous evening, all!
