For his 61st birthday, I asked Dad if I could knit him a hat. He said sure, but requested that it be in Marine colors. Unfortunately for me, thats the same colors as the Gryffindor house colors. So I've been using red and gold a lot lately. After this is done, no more red and gold for awhile. I'll need a break.
I haven't quite finished it, but I've almost reached the beginning of the decreases. I should be able to finish it tomorrow on my way to the family reunion. I'll probably take my laptop too but still get a lot of knitting done since I shouldn't be able to get internet there.
