I have made a hat before, but it was for a Halloween costume for a Princess and was not knitted. So this is the first hat I've knitted.
It was strange for me, after knitting so many sweaters, to have a project come off the needles in less than a week.
I bought the yarn in Georgia on that recent trip and had only one skein - and ran a little short - the hat should have been a little longer, more ribbing turned up. But in this dark color it's hard to even see the design and it will probably work o.k. for Norris.
