The local Lewiscraft had a sale on worsted acrylic in July...just what I needed for Tychus, the soi-dit "easiest hat ever." I ended up binding off in the CC, which made for a very thin seam up the back.
This hat was mostly knitted during episodes of "Slings & Arrows" (I can hear Martha Burns' voice when I look at the hat closely) and on the ride to New York this summer. The acrylic was awfully tangly; even worse than the wool I've used, and I had to use the Gordian solution once. The nice thing is that James seems to like it.
the only interruptions i will accept during nanowrimo
are the ones that involve new hats
