Did I really just name this post the most uninspired title of 'green hat'? And did I really just actually post that photo for all the world (okay, just the few people who read this blog) to see? I think I did. Apparently, there is no end to the humiliation I will put myself through to bring you new! fresh! content! every! weekday! (Okay, so maybe I'm a little sleep deprived - two year molars; birthday prep; 2 am grocery lists running through my head - you know how it is. Sometimes life makes you sleepy. Oh, and I swear that I am leaning on that door not for some lame attempt at an artsy shot, but rather to hold myself up. From falling over in sleepiness.)
As I was saying. This is my new hat. (And THAT is the mess on my studio floor.) The yarn is from Lizette that I showed you yesterday (just a reminder that the package arrived a month ago. Just so you don't go thinking I'm some Super Knitter.) It was an unmarked skein (she bought it on her travels), so I can't tell you what the yarn is - except to describe it as 'yummy' - definitely a wool blend. I used the Elf Caps pattern from Melanie Falick's Handknit Holidays (no, I still haven't gotten the courage to try those fabulous socks). Big chunky yarn + small project + my favorite color in yummy yarn = happy (and warm) me.
