Finally today was a little warmer. And tomorrow is supposed to be warmer still.
Meanwhile, I have been knitting up a storm.
This is the Slouchy Copy Cat Hat. It has a sort of faux cable look to it. This first one wasn't as slouchy as I would've liked. So I made this one:
I think I used a size 6 needle for the ribbing and a 9 for the body of the hat. I absolutely love this yarn, so I am keeping this hat for myself :) The first one will be a present.
The yarn for both are from Araucania. I lost the tag for the first one but the 2nd one is called Azapa. (You can see the colors better if you click the Azapa link there just above). It comes in several candy~like colorways. I bought the pink and purple too.
I plan on making a few more of these hats for gifts-they're pretty quick , pretty easy and look good too. My kind of hat !
Have a cozy day :)
