Knitted Wig

Stayed up way to LATE last night to knit the Hallowig from for my friend Helen's birthday. I think she will look darling and very retro in it. I used bright blue wool yarn I scavenged from an old Gap sweater and I think it turned out good. I have very found memories of this sweater. Lauren and I bought identical sweaters at the old Gap on University Ave. the one day it snowed during college. So it makes me happy that it will live on a something new.

I had trouble with the pattern though. T
he cast off method it calls for just does not look good, I can't believe that is really how the wig in the picture was done. Instead I did a circular cast off, like for a hat just sort of decreasing each round. It looks much better!
