I'm a little nervous showing all of you this hat as I'm a fairly new knitter so please be kind. My son wanted me to make him a hat in his college colors. This is the first time I've ever knitted stripes. It is knitted from Lions brand wool.

Note: I removed the smiley face that was in my original post because themore I looked at it, it looked like it was sticking it's tongue out instead of smiling. hee hee

Update: I gave my son his hat and he loves it! That makes me feel so good. Thanks to everyone who commented - that also makes me feel good! :)
