FO for today!

Although I'd like to be saying FO in a much different way today, I actually have a finished object report....

This was my second attempt at the Chunky Newsboy Cap - ravelry project link here. The first attempt, where I used the called-for yarn & needles, didn't go quite so well in sizing and ended up being gifted to my petite niece for Christmas.

For this version I upped the needles to size 15 for the body and size 10 for the brim, using Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky yarn and adding a few rows to the brim... I am quite pleased with the outcome. Its actually a little loose/big, but that just prevents hat-head!

I'm very pleased with the result... well except for the bind off edge where I drew the yarn through the last stitch. Its a tad "extra bulky" there ... but I can't be too picky. Even Matt seemed to like it!

As always, I had some modeling help... even if the girls were a little sleepy and less than enthusiastic...
