I didn't have enough of the white fluffy mystery yarn for Gandalf's hair, so I had to bight the bullet and get a whole skein of it. The good side to this is I found out what it is!
Jiffy! 100% Acrylic. color-fisherman.

Here is the yarn that I found for Gandalf's Hat. Mystery yarn once again.
I'm pretty sure that it has wool in it though...
The crown of the Hat. I put a strip of seed st. in because I thought it needed a little visual interest.
Knitting the Brim...Just looking at this hat you would think that it would probably be rather easy, right?
HA, ya that's a joke.
It was the most aggravating of what I have done so far.
My hands are still sore from this thing. Not to mention that I had to rip out and start over at least 3 times!!
But, good things come to those who wait..Right?
You see that little bit of yarn? that 1/4''?
Ya, that is all that's left of the yarn.
My Dad can tell you that it was rather intense around here when I was binding off...
It's a little wavy-er then I had wanted. But it gives it more character.
I had no idea how I would knit the hands with fingers. So I'm knitting them like mittens.
The finished hand.
Hands , Hat and Hair all together.
Here's the back, so far.
I love the little yellow patch on his butt...
I don't have the yarn for his boot's yet, so those are going to have to wait.
