Hat Trix

As I mentioned a while back, inspired by the Yarn Harlot, I decided to start a self-imposed club of my own, only with hats instead of socks (mostly 'cause I'm lazy, heh). My first pattern turned out to be a bust, but I regrouped and managed to complete August's project in the nick of time. Indeed, I cast on for the Star Crossed Slouchy Beret on August 31st at approximately 7:30 PM, and was weaving in the ends at 11 the same evening. Sweet!

This is why I love hats. They're quick, satisfying, and let's face it: when you live in a cold country, they're a must. And they look good on me too (or so I've been told).

Next up is Tamya, by Woolly Wormhead, which I'll knit with Cascade 220. If all goes well, I should be finishing the Aestlight shawl tonight. Definitely got my knitting mojo back!

Happy Knitting Everyone!

Clearly there's nothing wrong with your modelling mojo...some super cute shots there (and the hat looks pretty good too... ;) )
The Wormhead hat is really pretty...and we'll be knitting Wormhead hats TOGETHER for a while. Until you leave me in the dust, that is.. (grin)

VERY cute hat! That pattern's on my to knit list... eventually too. What yarn did you use for this one? You wrote that you'll use Cascade 220 for Tamya.. but you didn't say what for this one?
