Friday on a Monday

It’s obviously not Friday, it’s Monday (boo!). But here’s an finished object for FO Friday anyway.

So between all the various moves this summer I managed to misplace a whole heck of a lot of things, most of which I’ve since found, but some of which I haven’t. Somewhat impressively I managed to misplace every single hat I own. I’m positive I have some, somewhere in this apartment. I’ve torn this place apart multiple times trying to find them. They’re nowhere to be found. (And this is not a huge, or even very messy, apartment.)

I eventually realized that it would probably be faster to knit a hat then find any of mine. So I did. Just in time for the first snow storm of the year.

Pattern: My own
Yarn: Madelinetosh Merino, colorway: unknown, its a very rich dark blue if you want to take a guess.
Yardage: one skein (210 yards/192 meters)
Fiber Source: got it in a destash from a friend
Needles: 3.75 mm (US 5s) 40″ circulars for the tubular cast on; 4.5 mm (US 7s) 40″ circulars for the ribbing; and 6.00mm (US 10s) 40″ circulars for the main body of the hat. All knit using magic loop.

So I’m still waiting for all my other hats to show up, but at least I’m waiting with a warm head, and a cute hat.
