*points up* Hello Catty!

This is my version of the sparkle hat, on the beautiful model, Monkey. I made it without sparkles, and with 2 strands of worsted held together, because it is hard to find anything chunkier than 8ply in Australia, and with it being winter and all, the range was paltry. I'm thinking of weaving in a contrasting yarn through the purls or attatching beads or something. I left off the sparkle just because I personally wasn't fond of sparkle and wool. Maybe I'm just cranky, or it could be because it is so hot and I cannot imagine wearing a knitted hat, but I don't really like it. I made it from a really soft german acrylic, and I think it would have been nicer to make it out of wool, but a blend like was suggested in the book would have given it a lovely sheen.  It was very quick to knit up and I did it with some homemade dpns! It might benefit from a gentle wet blocking...
