Meathead complete!

This just may be the quickest Knitalong ever.

I cast on for this Meathead hat (as part of Stitchmarker's test knitalong for her book) about halfway through Standoff on Tuesday (the Mister likes the dude from "Office Space;" I like the chick from "Angel" and "Firefly").

I cast-off the last three stitches just before Hugh Laurie said his final lines in "House."

Now that's my kind of pattern.

The details: I used Lamb's Pride Bulky Bronze Patina (because it has just a hint of metally shine in it and I thought it would go good with a gold-ish pin). I made the small size and have enough yarn leftover for my cat to play with.

I knit it in the round (because I HATE SEAMING).

There was no question my embellishment (which is called for in the pattern) would be a pin, because I embellish all aspects of clothing with pins daily.

But which pin?

I found this sparkly gold leaf at one of the local thrift stores and couldn't help notice the similarity between it's pointy little head and the pointy top of my meathead.

Overall, a pleasure to knit!

And it's been so fun to see everyone's finished meatheads. To see them for yourself, visit the Flickr site here.
