A couple of weeks ago Shoni asked me to knit him a hat. From most people I would ignore such a request, but Shoni is great, and he's the only person who came on our Israel trip that haven't knit for. Also, it's a hat, which is a quick knit. So, I did. I choose A Hat Fit For A Boyfriend, since Nicola has knit it, and it's a simple, honest hat.
I followed the pattern, using some old stash yarn, which is Pear Tree fingering yarn that I three plied together. The issue is that it has come out quite large on me and on Leon, but I think that Shoni has a largeish head. I was planning on just dropping it in his letter box on Monday, since he lives around the corner from the Richmond Knitters. I can't decide if I should do that, but pop a note in suggesting it might be large, or email him and ask him to send me his head measurements. But I guess, since it's already knit I may as well just give it to him and see. I hate giving knitted things if they are not quite right though.
