Knock it off!
I had seen the Banana Republic Knockoff Hat
pattern floating around the internet, and while I thought it was cute, I had no burning desire to cast on. Then Karla
came over to knit one day, and what do you know, she had one on the needles. And naturally, I had
to cast one on. I am so weak. I can not resist chunky hat patterns. Or seed stitch. Or cute buttons. Or Karla's enabling. Pattern:Banana Republic Knockoff Hat

I have a confession to make though. I knit this back in January, but I'm only blogging it now. I got so caught up in Kellen's sweater (blog post coming soon!) that everything else went blurry. It was a fun knit though. It's a little on the drapey side because of the Alpaca, but it's nice and warm! I definitely want to make more in the future. Mmmm...seed stitch and cute buttons! You can't go wrong.
Oh, yeah, and Happy St. Patrick's day. As a not-very-Irish American, the holiday isn't big in my house. But I am wearing a green sweater. And I am going to cook cabbage and potatoes for dinner. Celebrations are worth celebrating regardless, in my book. :)
