Mike's hat is coming along...slowly. Between the twisted rib stitch and what now seems like very slender yarn (Paton's Decor), this hat seems to be taking forever. I started on Sunday October 23. Okay, it's only 3 days, it just feels longer. His birthday was yesterday, so it's late. Still...it's awfully nice...and he does hate the cold, so I think he'll like it. It would be awesome if I were to finish it before he goes back to the Philipines, where he has no use for a hat.
