Dog Caught in a Bucket

Finished Object Report!!! I finished the Bucket Hat on Sunday evening while watching Big Brother (omg... anyone else annoyed beyond belief by Ronnie and Chima?!?!). Overall its a very quick knit, but it stayed OTN for a few weeks because it was my track knitting for Matt's past couple of races wins (he's now won 4 in a row - woo hoo! I'll post some pics later this week).

Don't you just adore my model? Sophie was so cute with this one that I literally had tears running down my face from laughing so hard during our "photo shoot" Sunday night! The other kids gave it a shot too, but no one rocked it quite like Sophie...

Zeus and Tut gave respectable attempts (click linked names for more pics, you know me and the camera)...

Lola (yes, that's her under there) thought you might want a better view of the lacey pattern...

Yarn is Rowan RYC Cotton Jeans in the Sailcloth colorway. I absolutely loved working with this cotton and will use it again. I picked the color to have a somewhat neutral summer beachy-hat (not that I go to the beach, mind you) and as you can clearly see, it turned out to be very suiting for Princess Sophie.

I haven't decided just how much I like this hat on me yet, but its definitely got a cuteness factor. Matt's first reaction was "you look like you're ready to go fishing," so I guess it does suit the summery/beachy feel. Now to get brave enough to wear it... in. public.

Sophie says "OK, you got your shot... photoshoot over."
