Bret’s Shedir: FO

Bret’s Shedir 

Originally uploaded by brandy.wolfe

I was rummaging through a drawer in the living room and found an old neglected project. A project that dated back to the first 6 months of my knitting life. I had purchased this beautiful tweed yarn from my LYS and had intended a scarf. Really.
I know better now. As soon as I saw the tweed sitting there, half on the needles, it was like it yelled “SHEDIR.” So I cast on immediately.
It totally drew my attention away from other projects and It came out beautifully.
I did have to frog it once, about 15 rows around the brim once I realized that the cast on stitches called for were making a hat fit for a head the size of Hagrid’s. Yesterday morning I grabbed a pair of DPN’s from Ben Franklin Crafts and after much obsessive knitting, and much prancing around the house with a half finished spiky thing on my head, It turned out a perfect fit. But I decided the color was just right for Bret. I am seriously considering making a matching purple one for myself. I have the yarn and eveything. AND I know that taking out an additional 2 cable sections will still fit me quite nicely, and perhaps even allow for me only having 1 ball of the yarn.
*Consider me scheming*
