Today's Sunday hat pattern is the Eomer Shield Tam found on Ravelry.
The Ravelry description states, "The inspiration for this pattern came from an unused Lord of the Rings drawing of a shield for Eomer. This complex-looking tam is not as hard as it looks! A quick, yet fun and challenging knit for intermediate to advanced knitters." Honestly, the "challenging knit for intermediate to advanced knitters" part of that description scares me a bit & I hadn't planned to knit this tam, but, Sarah started re-reading the series a few days ago so I may end up attempting it. We'll see how much motherly love I actually have.
But whether I knit the tam or not, I thought it was a beautiful pattern. If you go to the pattern's Ravelry page, you'll find photos of several different color ways & an instance where it has been turned into a clock. Pretty cool!
Meanwhile, the dogs have been helping Mike do the taxes.
It cracks me up how Minnie likes to sit in a nearby chair to watch Mike work.
