FO: The most boring hat in the world

First, thankyou for the well-wishes. I'm still struggling with what I now suspect is the flu, but I'll be fine after lots of rest and cat snuggles.

And... it's given my time to clear out a WIP
 Yup... Dave's hat is done. And while it looks seriously large on Roxy's wee head, it should be just perfect for Dave's giant noggin.
It seriously is the most boring hat in the world. But that's the way he likes them. It was hard to resist just throwing a deathflake or two on there. Only knowing that he'd never wear it kept me from searching the stash for some contrasting yarn.
Just a simple X decrease for the cap. I used some of the Regia 6-Ply tweed leftover from Sandpoint. I have enough leftover to make some matching fingerless gloves.... now I just need to find the motivation.

Flu is bad. Hat is good. Men things are never much fun to knit-unless you are Stephen West.

I think hats by their very nature are boring. I'm working on one now with plenty of color interest, but it is B-O-R-I-N-G!

Dave's hat looks like it will be very warm --- just what he'll be needing for Canadian winter.
