Helm -- Error

So someone thankfully point out that in the original pattern I had up that increasing 12 stitches from 98 for the brim does not 120 make. Pattern has now been corrected, you must cast on 108 stitches, not 98.

There should be some knitting in a day or two, just got a few more rounds on this knit...

First FO of 2008! -- Scarflet

Well, this is it, my first completed knit of the year!
To recap:
I mentioned cables,

(and isn't the reverse side fabulous as well?)

and buttons,


and here is the result! (and a big thanks to my human analog model, who seems to have suffered some sever head trauma in a past life.





This scarflet shall soon be on its merry way across the continent to a surprise recipient!

Pattern: Of my own devising
Yarn: One skein Malabrigo, colour 102 - Sealing Wax
Needles: 5.0mm bamboo straights (14"?)
Started: Monday the 14th, January
FInished: Thursday the 17, January

Super quick knit, nice excuse to use mmmmmalabrigo. I hope it gets put to good use in the cold winter climes of the East Coast!
