In addition to the ogre hat, I knit up Rosi G.'s Capitan Hat this weekend. It was a fun and fast knit on US size 10 needles and Encore worsted held doubled. I used about 1 ball, making it a $7 project. The best thing about it is it's flattering on just about everyone. Maggie, my sister, my mom, and I all tried it on and it was cute on everyone. I'll have to think about a couple more of these for the holidays. This one, I think, is destined for my SIL.
This is also going to the hat contest at Gene Ann's Yarns. If you're interested, the deadline for submissions is October 15. Votes for your favorites will be accepted until November 15. Popular vote decides the winner, who will take home a $100 gift ceritifacte to Gene Ann's Yarns.
