I was asked to make a pair of gloves for my father-in-law this year. Gloves are great because they knit up fast, and don't use much yarn (these are Dream in Color "Classy" worsted). Somehow I always end up making the ring finger first, so it looks like the gloves are for rude people only.
This one is the Tasseled Fez from Charlene Schurch's book Hats On. Hopefully it will keep the head of my college boy warm this winter. More detail on the construction in a previous post here HERE.
