Happy Thanksgiving!

With another baby due anytime now, I'm glad the baby hat mojo is still rolling. I know these hats look suspiciously like Christmas hats, and it's only Thanksgiving Day here, but I have to knit these while the hat energy is rolling.

Pattern: Sasha's Hat
by Saartje who also brought us the Noro Hat and the Nissen(cork people).
Yarn: Cascade Pima Tencel in a very lovely red. Scraps of mystery yarn for pompom.
Needles: size 6
Comments: This pattern is more of a receipe. I love that it is knit top down. I used a yarn over, knit through back on next row for my first increase and I'm a little sorry I did. It left a larger hole then the M1 increase. The yarn feels very nice and is machine washable. I've reserved another ball at Aloha Yarns to make one more!

The timer has gone off so my giblets are cooked. Time to finish off the dressings (my family requires both bread and wild rice stuffing) and prepare the bird for the roast. While it cooks and the smells start to waft around, it's a great time to think about all that I have to be grateful for. So have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
