FO: Mooses hat! (aka 2010 mock Olympic hat)
After the cute hat with the mooses (fine... reindeers....) was linked I was DYING to have one. Of course $75 is a bit steep so I found a pattern on Ravelry and set off to knit it.

The pattern needed a lot lot lot of adjusting size wise, but so far I'm liking the results I'm getting. Not to mention this is my VERY FIRST time doing any sort of colorwork!!!! AHHH!!! Turns out it's pretty easy, but I'd still rather do lace ;o)

So here it is!

Very nice. For your first colourwork, this is a fantastic job! You are more brave than I have been. I have never tried colourwork. Great job!!!

Thanks so much!!!! Christine, I LOVE the quote in your profile haha!!!

It's got a few dimples and weirdnesses despite me reading about how SUPER important it was to hold the yarn loosely I guess me not holding the yarn at all didn't eliminate the dimples. I think I might very very lightly felt the finished product anyway because I want the stitches to look a little less defined.

Looks great!

Just don't hold it too loosely either. I tried that recently and looked just as bad as it did when it was too tight!
