Banana Republic Knock Off Hat

MAN I love this pattern!! I am going to make a couple more of these hats and stash them for Christmas presents. Already started a second one.
Banana Republic Knock off Hat (Pattern Here)
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease gifted from Celti
Cast On: Tuesday morning 10/23
Cast Off: Tuesday night 10/23
Button from an old duPont Manual High School Uniform (my Alma mater)

In other news, Dad had a birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday dad!! I called him and the boys picked out a hoops and yoyo card on the Internet to email him. I sent his gift and my brother has it. So when I find out he's gotten the gift I'll post it here. Maybe I already did I can't remember, but don't want to post it now and ruin the surprise! If you're on Ravelry you can see it there. :)

Also on the home front, we have the keys to the new joint. Last night a very nice coworker of Brent's came over with his two teen age sons and they moved some boxes over to the new place. I think they made about 3 trips in that big Suburban truck of theirs!! The rooms here in the old apartment are looking big again now that all the boxes are gone. I'll get some pictures soon of the new place. It's beautiful.

I'm not sure when I'll have the Internet back up over at the new place so this may be my last blog entry for a bit.

Great hat! I'll have to give that one a whirl myself. It looks like it would work nicely with some of my handspun. Can't wai tto see picks of the new place! (oh, and happy b-day "dad"!)
