One down

I finished the first of many hats that I have committed to knitting for various folks nationwide (well, LA and NYC). Here is Joey's hat, as modeled by Joey himself.What a great shirt! The hat seems a little big, I know. I think I'll begin the decrease rows a little sooner for the next one. Here's the reverse side as modeled by me in my bathroom, as usual.I messed up the ribbing a little because I didn't trust the instructions. I followed the instructions exactly on the last two rows of ribbing and guess what? I'm an idiot and should have trusted them all along. Oh well--Design Element!

Joey was thrilled and this is how he repaid me.I'm a sucker for pretty flowers. How did he know these are my favorites? (pay no attention to all the boxes in my messy office)

Later I enjoyed a delicious lunch of mini cheesecakes from the lovely Silentia Jones, formerly of the Cheesecake Cafe (not Factory) which used to be in Rosemead. She's currently looking for a new location. I'll let you know when she's got one, because her Death By Chocolate and Snickers cheesecakes are not to be missed.
