Brrrr it's cold. Time for a new hat

It's another cold wave in Boston, so it was time for another hat. I liked the last one, but it was loose - so here is the "Cable Hat" from Island Yarn. There were a couple of problems with the pattern, but once I figured it out, the hat took no time. I made it with Mirasol Sulka which is a really beautiful yarn. The recommended needle size was 10.5, but I didn't have those, so I used 10 dpns. Unfortunately it is smaller than I would have liked, but I used the left over yarn for the pom pom. One of these days I will make the perfect hat. Fortunately, they don't take long to make.

For Christmas, I also finished the sweater for my neice. I liked the way it came out, but making 4 row stripes on a baby sweater is WAY too much yarn changing. It was a pain. I can't wait to see her in the sweater.

I hope wherever you are, you are enjoying the season. Personally, I like the excuse of slowing down and being inside - at least for now.
