There’s something important that I need to say about that blanket. And about who deserves it.

My friends in the Uptownknitmob are the most incredible, generous, loving people. Also, they are ninjas. Sneaky, brilliant, awesome ninjas.
Oh, right! I’ve been so distracted waiting for Jane Austen Knits to get published that I have somehow neglected to tell you about all the OTHER secret knitting I was doing!
My sister got married in August, and that prompted a total of 3 knits — some secret, some less so. I might as well blog about them all now!
I almost didn’t blog the final knitted gift I made, because I completely forgot to take any FO pictures of it. However, in the interest of giving a Really Good Pattern greater exposure, here we are.
The third gift I made this Christmas was by far the biggest undertaking, and the one I’m most proud of completing:
Christmas Gift Knit #1: Morgan Hat for Dad
I made one of these ingenious hats for my soon-to-be-brother-in-law Jamie last Christmas, and this year, Dad’s only Christmas request was to have a Morgan Hat of his own.
Full details are on Ravelry, but here are the basics:
- Pattern: Morgan, by Anne Kuo Lukito (@annekuolukito), on Knitty
- Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool and Rowan Kid Silk Haze, held together — just under 1 ball apiece
- Needles: Two 4.0 mm circs
- Other notions: Fine gauge plastic canvas, felt, and sewing thread for stiffening the peak
