Now, assembling the whole thing was a little more difficult than I would have liked. The pattern said gauge didn't matter, but I think it was lying.

Up next on the knitting front is a matching hat and bootie set for the little guy. I haven't decided on which pattern to use for the booties and I'm using the same pattern I used for the base of the Hooter Hat only with a different brim. I also have the best yarn for this project. It's the prettiest gradient blue and it's super soft (it's 65% wool, 20% nylon, and 15% silk):
Until next time...
