I made a hat! I would say it was so quick that you didn’t get to see a WIP, but I finish things so often (and make so many things) that I don’t have a lot of WIP posts anyway.

(If you can’t have fun taking pictures of a wool hat in August, I don’t know when you could)

Pattern: Capucine
Yarn: Recycled wool/viscose/cashmere/angora laceweight, which I doubled and navajo plied. Six strands total. Super thick.
Needles: US 10/6mm
Mods: None, knit exactly as written

I made this hat in two days, the bulk of the knitting being done in one. Huge yarn and huge needles makes for a SUPER quick knit. The pattern was clear and easy to follow and the change in textures kept things interesting. As if you could get bored with such a quick project.

The hat itself is super thick and super warm and I am desperately in love with it. I want fall weather and cold and snow so I can get back to wearing my copious cold-weather knits. I have so many hats and mitts and scarves (OH the scarves since I took up weaving) and sweaters to wear. It has been marginally cooler over the past weekend, but not nearly cool enough.
