FO Friday

I've finished several things, but have only had time to get a picture of one: Cats in the Hat (Ravelry link)

I used Noro silk garden sock for the main color and some leftover gray wool/bamboo/nylon blend in a fingering weight.

It's a lovely straight forward pattern, and my sister will love it. It's my first attempt at a non-geometric stranded knitting pattern, and I was able to make it work. I twisted the strands so there wasn't a float longer than four stitches. I was able to block the hat so its a bit slouchy, which she'll like.

I just have to remember to ask for it back to enter in the state fair this August, but I don't think she will be using it much then...
