FO-Party hat!

Look what I made on my trip!

Husband and I made an agreement that he would turn off his BlackBerry and I wouldn't knit on our little mini vacation this week but the drive too and from was open season!! So I managed to knit all of this hat except for the decreases at the top on our drive. Once I got home yesterday I was able to finish the whole thing! I love instant-gratification projects! This one is for my cutie-cute niece so that I have something fun to give her when we visit.

So here are the details.

Pattern: Simple Baby Cap 2 with Simple Tool Topping from Itty-Bitty Hats
Size: 2 years and up
Yarn: Plymouth Yarns Encore Worsted in cream and Cascade 220 in magenta
Other supplies: Tool from my local Khaladia textiles supplier
Modifications: The only modification I made was to add the pink stripes because what little girl doesn't like pink! Also this was my first experience using addis. Now I love my KnitPicks interchangeables and will definately not leave them behind, but I can definitely see what all the hype is about when it comes to Addis cause they are smooooooth.
