As I mentioned before, my dad is hard to buy for.. and even worse when his birthday and Christmas are in the same month. I knit him a Bankhead hat in a super thick and cozy wool I had in my stash. It only took me a couple days but as most knitters understand the time before Christmas is CRUNCH TIME. He loved the hat and even my brother was eyeing it up. I might knit him one, we'll see. I'm not sure if he is knit-worthy just yet. While knitting this hat I feel that I need to tidy up the decreases a bit. I wanted to keep the ribs flowing all the way up but I feel they need a bit of a tune up. I will try out a few things and update the pattern when I get around to doing that.
