secret knitting

Now that Christmas is over, I can show you the hat I was knitting on the sly for Pete.  Apparently I wasn't sly enough, because he knew something was up.  He said it was obvious because I wasn't knitting when he'd walk in.  Note to self:  Next year, cultivate a decoy project to snatch up.
(I used Sun May's Ultimate Hat pattern in black Cascade 220 Superwash, using slightly bigger needles than she called for.  I also stopped knitting the body of the hat at about 10 inches, then followed her instructions for decreasing, but continued to k2tog until only a couple of stitches remained.)
