Weekend Review - the missing FO

Churchable's Zeebee @ weekend activities
Churchable is trying to fix the silver brick, which is what he did while I knit a hat.

Since churchable was going skiing and I had slipped two balls of yarn in his stocking for Christmas destine to be a ski hat, I knew I had to whip up a hat super quick. After knitting a bit on Arwen, I put her aside and start knitting the Short Row Hat (pdf), but got frustrated when I got lost in the design. Please forgive me but I wanted a quick pattern that could be on his head in a day. So by friday afternoon, I had ripped out that puppy and cast on for a Zeebee.

Churchable's Zeebee

Pattern: Zeebee by Schmeebot
Yarn: Jo-Ann Debbie Mumm Traditions 1 skein (75% Acrylic, 23% Wool, 2% Other)Color 08
Needles: US 5 DPNs
Mods: I cast on 39 st and each eighth of the pattern was 26 rows wide. This was a fun pattern. Churchable liked if but felt it was not as warm as his other hat so I will have to knit this at a tighter gauge. I have one more skein of this yarn.
