Knitting Hats

This was the original inspiration of the Imperial Stout Cap. I really liked how the cables just went into the hat, but a co-worker suggested the 1x1 rib would be better for a men's hat. I thought I'd knit up my original design though as a hat for me.

I love this Magenta/Raspberry Pink color. I have another hat in a similar but darker color. I seem to wear a lot of it, whether it is a blouse or as accent colors.

In other news, Kim leaves for Europe in 4 days. I'm doing ok until I start to think about it too much. Then my heart starts racing and I have a hard time taking a deep breath. I know she is going to have to time of her life, but I'm worried too.

I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it many more times, but I keep thinking I'm going to keep up on the blog and it doesn't happen. I'm sorry for that.

I do have some exciting news though! At the lys I work at we have a Top 10 Quick Holiday Knits that we have done for at least the last two years. This year we decided Top 12. One of my patterns was released yesterday and it has been in the What's Hot section on Ravelry. Today it actually made it to #4! I'm pretty pleased with that. It's free until Sunday night, so get it while you can.

And I'll leave it at that. See you next time.
