This friday I'm be giving my first Works-In-Progress talk for my department, and I have very little data to show. As a newly third year graduate student, I required to give a WIP for not only my department, but also for my program, and for a collaborator WIP that my boss does once a month. That's three hour long talks a year, not counting poster presentations.
So to keep my mind off of public speaking, I made a hat.

I used Knitpicks Wool of the Andes and the pattern A Hat Fit For a Boyfriend By Stephanie Nicole. Eric seems to like it so far! It's a very quick knit, made in less than a week in the few hours I was at home. I did have a few modifications, I cast on an extra 20 stitches, and made it about 4 inches longer, to fit my guys head.
Hopely after this week I can post some of my longer knit WIPs that are coming along nicely. (No public speaking required!)
