In a rare turn of events, there’s actually a possibility that I’ll have a knitted gift done in time for the occasion that it’s actually for. GASP! That’s right, I’m done with the Christmas knitting and am now working on a hat for a birthday, and said birthday is still a week and a half away.
The lucky recipient, my old friend Pod, requested a simple ribbed beanie in a tweed yarn, so it makes for quick and mindless knitting.
It’s coming along nicely! I have a week to finish knitting it, then give it a gentle block before tossing it in the mail to ensure that it arrives on time. The 3×2 ribbing isn’t too bad, and this yarn (Knit Picks City Tweed HW) is surprisingly soft, I’m really enjoying working with it.

Look great! Sometimes, plain and simple is all you need. :) Same reason why I love garter. Nice work! (and I love your marker!)
Lots of love,
