finished object friday

In time for the coldest day, I finished my hat! It's a Rhinebeck 2006 purchase: Briar Rose Fibers Collette, 85% wool & 15% mohair, 190 yards. And it was only $15! There's enough left over for a little pair of mitten, too. I saw a hat with a big braid in the Briar Rose booth, and went searching for the pattern. Not finding anything, I branched out and didn't follow a pattern to the letter. The bottom is the Loose Five Rib Braid with Abby added border from Barbara G. Walker's Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns, and I just picked up about 70 stitches and started knitting the top part. It worked out really well, and will be even better when the wind isn't blowing at 30 mph.

Super pretty. Nice thick braid for keeping the ears warm too.
