What I've been Knitting

I knit up this hood for a birthday present the other day. Does it look familiar? It's the hood worn by Lyra in "The Golden Compass". I got the pattern from Lion Brand's site here via Craftzine. I altered their pattern with smaller stitches. The Lion Brand pattern's gauge is 4 stitches = 4 in. So, you can imagine it knits up really quick. This pattern is super easy.

That's extremely cute. I saw it posted at craftzine too and I'm going to make one for my daughter because she needs it with our terrible weather!

Also I hope you don't mind, but I tagged you in a meme I did this evening here. Please don't feel pressured to do it too!
