Yay, more Christmas knitting!

I'm still plugging away at the Irish Hiking Scarf but decided I needed to knock the hat out of the way so I could knit up the rest of the yarn with the scarf. I hope my sister meant it when she said she liked pink.

This is the Coronet hat from Knitty in a size medium. The pictures are unblocked. I figure I'm going to store them until Christmas and will block them when it is closer to time. I used Knit Picks Swish Superwash in the Ballerina colorway. It took about 1.3 skeins of yarn or 65gm (gotta love those digital scales). I did modify the pattern a bit so it doesn't flip up but stockinette starts directly from the band. It comfortably covers the top half of my ears and is quite warm.

I do have to knit another baby hat. This makes the 4th previous and/or current co-worker I've made a baby hat for just since March! No babies for years and then 4 in rapid succession. Whatever they're drinking I will have none, thank you. I've been cruising Ravelry for easy baby hat patterns but still have not decided yet.
