I made a hat!

That's right, a hat! Yes! With Owl cables!

I worked with DPNs. (Double Pointed Needles!) It was fun!

Here it is, crammed over my curls. Is it winter yet? I want to wear my owl hat!

Here is my owl hat, soaking in its blocking water! It's a hat!

One last photo of my fabulous owl hat!
Pattern: Owl Hat from RuthieKnits
Mods: I only did five rows of stockinette after the ribbing, and left off about three rows at the end. This moved the owls down, and made it a shorter hat.
Yarn: Cascade 220 in green tweed
Needles: 7 Circulars & DPNs

How long did it take? Perhaps you can give a figure in total hours:minutes and possibly days/weeks?

It took me two-ish days, about 14 hours. It was basically all I did Tuesday and Wednesday. I had to resist the urge to run around showing it to everyone on the block when I finished it.

'Manda, it's awesome! Four needles is like a serious Faroese mama. It looks so good with your glasses.
