Not much knitting, many things to report

The only modification I made from the original pattern was making the corrugated ribbing at the cuff so I can practice that some more from the class.

One "out there" thing at Stitches was my ticket winning a alpaca hat at the student banquet. Here's me wearing the hat:

Most peoples' reaction is: "You look like an Eskimo!"
