First FO of 2009 is complete. I finished my brother's hat earlier this evening and felt much satisfaction in knowing I had a project that went as well as it could have. I'm a bit nervous that it will be too small for him, but I'm hoping it turns out alright and it fits. (I need to see if there's errata for that pattern because the writer claimed that one skein each of the MC and CC would make a hat or the mittens, for the largest hat size, that is definitely not true.)
Now, I've cast-one for my first of 2 or 3 Rusted Roots with some serious modifications. Will post more about that later.
