I'm knitting the Koolhaas Hat from Interweave Knits Holiday 2007 issue for the girl who shared a room with Jen at hospital ... it is a very cool pattern, if slow! I'm using the Estonian Cable technique to do the little 2 stitch cables that abound, which means I don't have to use a cable needle. The technique is described in IK's Favourite Socks (Meida's Sock pattern by Nancy Bush). Very cool!
Holidays is nice. Now to finish Mariah!
ETA : Yarn is cheapy Panda Carnival 100% wool - fairly soft, and not machine washable. It's not to bad, really, and only $3.60 per ball!
