Not sure if this is so ugly it's cute, or so cute it's ugly.  Either way I can't take it off my head.  The yarn is this female-author-themed yarn I picked up at a yarn store in Philly; the particular author for this colorway is Louisa May Alcott Smiley

Basic drop stitch scarf with three pretty yarns from my LYS.

I knitted these awhile back (you can see how the yarn has pilled a bit).  I took the lace pattern from this post by spirals420.  Yarn is from Artyarns and is some sort of cotton blend that is prone to pilling Angry.

Thanks for looking and happy knitting!

I love that kitty hat! One question, though: Why is the yarn called 'Louisa May Alcott'?

Thanks all!

porfavoray - it was from a bunch of hand-dyed yarn with colorways named after different female authors / icons.  I'm not sure why that particular colorway is called Louisa May Alcott, but I really liked the colors.  I wanted to get one named after Edith Piaf but the colors didn't suit me as much Sad

It's the kittyville hat, pattern here . I did a 2x2 rib border instead of seed stitch, because I thought it looked better with the yarn.  And I didn't add pom-poms because I find them too silly (even for a kitty hat)
