There's been sadly little knitting time since I've been back in the States (though I have actually been getting considerable work done on my dissertation - that's probably for the best). But I did manage to design and knit this Budyonovka hat for my husband, out of Peace Fleece. It was based on a hat his grandmother made for him when he was little (the lighter blue one above, at left), but the grown-up version mostly resembles an early Soviet military hat called the Budyonovka, hence its name.
