The joys of a quickie.
I cast on this little hat Tuesday evening after I finished Dad's socks. It's Gretel, by Ysolda Teague. I've been eyeing this pattern for a while, and suddenly realized that I had enough Cash Iroha left in stash to make it. This may be the first time I've ever knit a pattern with the yarn it was written for. The universe may wobble a bit.
Anyhoo, I can't say enough nice things about this pattern. It's quick, clear, and all around fabulous. It's written for three versions; fitted, standard or slouchy. This is the slouchy, almost snood like version. Yay for 60 degree weather, I'm sorry I bitched about you. Please forgive me. This will probably be glued to my head for the next couple days. I'm such a knit-dork.
I may have also already promised to make one for a friend who squealed over it tonight. Yay again for quick knits. :)
