Owls & Monkeys

So for What To Knit When You're Expecting, I made some Owl & Monkey pillows.  And since they were by far Willow's favorite thing in the entire world, I decided to try for a little continuity.  Here we have Owl & Monkey hats:

They're knit in SweetGeorgia Superwash Worsted, using US 6 needles, and I will never, ever get over my love for that yarn.  It's just so soft and silky, an absolute joy to knit with.  These hats are knit flat and then seamed (it was the easiest way to get that fake intarsia thing happening).  I had the hardest time wrapping my head around it--was a flat hat really going to be round??

But it is, and seaming it was much easier than I thought, and my Little Owl absolutely loves her hats.  Even if the owl hat is just another for the collection.
