Noro Hat - Complete!

Noro hat from Saartjeknits has been completed. She has a free pattern available and so I thought I would give it a try. I used the same yarn she did - Noro Kureyon No. 92 on size 8 needles. I used almost 2 skeins. Her instructions state you need a little more than one skein, but it is definitely 2 skeins. I used size 8 needles and it is just a little bit too big for the average head, so think I might give it a spin in the washing machine, with a little fear and trepidation when it comes to shrinkage. Next time I will reduce the number of stitches.
Interestingly when I took several pictures, I chose this one that is more two dimensional as the other pictures looked more like a breast. I guess if you look at this image sideways, you'll get the idea. Gotta keep the blog clean!
I love the colors in the Noro Kureyon. Always keeps the knitting interesting!
We should have some cooler weather - today the high was 55, far lower than the 81 we had on Sunday. Tomorrow is an all day rain so the meteorologist says!

Lovely hat! Thanks for showing it! I think it is a good idea to put it in the washing machine to tighten it up a bit. Can we get a picture of you wearing it afterwards?
