FO: Blue hat

My youngest son and I went to my LYS Saturday.  While we were there, he spotted some blue yarn he loved, so we got it.  The yarn was Plymouth Yarn's Grandiosa Hand Dyed yarn (75% Merino, 25% Alpaca; the boy has good taste).  His challenge: mom had to make something with just the one twist of yarn.  My answer to his challenge, a blue hat:

I used size US 13 circular needles, which produces about 2 st. per inch, and knits very quickly.  The twist had just a little over enough to make the hat, so he insisted I leave the tail attached.  I admit I did not anticipate its transformation into a blue Fu Manchu.
