Much like last year, the only handmade that I was able to get under the tree was Steve's hat, but it sure was a lot of fun to make. I used this pattern and Debbie Bliss' casmerino aran, which is super soft and a dream to knit. The stranding was so much easier than I feared it might be and the floats make the hat very cozy and warm. Steve loves it and so do I. In fact, I like it so much that I'm going to use my leftover yarn to knit myself one. I asked Steve if having husband-wife hats would lessen his positive opinion of this one and he assured me that it would not. Phew.
