Finished: Barley Hat

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day! I know I did. Not only did hubby take me to one of our favorite restaurants (where we had delicious drinks and devoured flourless chocolate cake that made me gain 5lbs in two hours), but he also got me yarn and a super adorable doggy card. I guess I'll keep him around for awhile.

But I wasn't the only one to receive yarn for Valentine's Day. I got him some yarn, too - but in the shape of a Barley Hat. As my Instagram followers know, I had already bought some madelinetosh vintage in the limited edition Black Tie Affair colorway specifically for this project. Nick is a huge fan of simple hats in blacks and greys, so I figured this would be a good fit. Plus, it gave me a good excuse to pick up some new Karbonz since I didn't have any Size 8s.

He loves it and wears it every day, but he refused to let me take a picture of him in it. Coward. 

Being that I haven't made him a hat since our first anniversary, it was about time I got back to my roots and showered him with handknits. I'm glad it was a hit!
