Matchy Matchy

Just a quick post today. Nap time was largely given over to blocking rather than knitting, because I finished this:

at lunch. The picture is unblocked and I'm hoping blocking keeps the ear flaps down. If not, I'll add the I-cord ties. The pattern is Tienne's and was great fun to knit. I only made a few modifications. I did the child's size in sport weight (Telemark) on size 5 needles and got a hat that has a 16 inch diameter, unstretched. I also knitted on between the earflaps, rather that using the backwards loop, because I find the latter a pain to knit from.

That is really cute! I find the backwards loop cast on a pain too!
