In hindsight though...I guess $6 a ball was a little low to pay for LYS superwash wool, which is what I thought it was.
That doesn't mean I'm displeased with the yarn or the hat though...I'm just not excited about the yarn as I was before.
Anyhow, above is the son's hat made from the *yarn*. I used the hat pattern in Ann Budd's Book of Knitting Patterns. I'm not wild about the top of the hat though--I'd prefer a smoother, more skullcap like decrease, like the ones in the other hats I made. Still, it'll keep that little head of his warm.
