Deadfish Hat #2

At long last, I have a finished object and I'm very excited! My elbow and just being busy in general slowed my knitting down dramatically these last several weeks. The elbow, so far, feels fine. :) Here's my second Deadfish Hat. This one's for Earl, the gentleman that did my tattoo.

I used "Dark Fantasy" yarn from Backstitches for this hat and to be honest, I didn't like it as well as the "Loops & Threads" I used for the last hat. The Fantasy is too fine, too split-able and it doesn't want to retain the shape as well as the Michaels brand.

Oh, and here's the skein of hand-dyed yarn that I did at WWKIP. :) Can't wait until we do the jacquard next!

Next up: A plum colored wrap, a third (and final) Deadfish Hat for my five year old nephew and the start of the Great American Aran Afghan (I'm using, naturally, Ann McCauley's pattern first). Yes'm...big case of start-itis now.
