Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.
lig·a·ture [lig-uh-cher, -choor] noun. — Printing. a character or type combining two or more letters. (Yarn overs aren't all that different)

So I'm crazy and I decided I needed to knit a hat for my FBIL for his birthday. Um… his birthday is tomorrow! **headdesk**. The wool arrived YESTERDAY, and I just cast off now. I'm going to be weaving in ends on the car ride over, but it's DONE. Gah. I don't know what possessed me… I'm fast at hats but now my hands hurt lol I think I need a break from hats. I know it looks tiny, but it stretches a lot, soo it fits, promise ^_~

    That's a nice patter, I like the way the top finishes. Just wondering if you made the top-of-ear or cover-the-ear version? I always like my whole ear covered. so it covers the grey in the sideburns too.;)

    What - you haven't finished your sweater yet :-). You have so many lucky friends and relatives.

    I have been known to insist that someone else drive so I can finish this project RIGHT NOW. Let us not discuss the "mile a minute afghan" done driving across North Dakota and Montana in a RV with twin 2 year old daughters, two cats, a mother and the then husband as the driver. Thank G-d there was no one else on the road. It was NOT a pretty sight. Afton

    you should go soak your hands in some hot paraffin, will releive some of the soreness. My faorite remedy for "too much knitting syndrom". Cute hat.

    I love that pattern or design, I have a dd in chemo, & they work wonderful. Not the old lady frumpy hats that seem to show up. I couldn't get over how much they stretch! Love the color.

    Really nice-looking! I can't believe you did it in one day!

    Ha ha, nice! I think we are all crazy that way. Take me. I have to get my shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child to the drop-off center Sunday night, and, I have only finished TWO of the several things I need to crochet (knitting takes me too long at this point!).

    Eh yeah. So WHY am I posting this comment when I SHOULD be working? That's what got me in this pickle in the first place!

    Regardless, nice hat! Hope he likes it!

    My mother's birthday is in a week and I still haven't started. Procrastination is my middle name!
