FO Melissa's Hat
I finally found the time to finish the hat I'd been knitting for one of the bartenders over at Applebee's.

It's kind of rough looking, which is what I was going for as it's supposed to go with her corduroy coat. As I don't have access to a washer and drier at the moment I'll just have to leave it to her to wash and dry it to finish it. It would have been nice to have been able to do that before giving it to her as washing does even out the stitches and all, but I'm hoping she'll like it anyway.

I think it'll go great with a corduroy coat!

Love the "rough" texture; it will go very nicely with the corduroy. Nice knitting - she will love it.

What yarn did you use, Mason?
