I made this little little ditty for a graphic artist friend of mine who wanted a hat. We hammered out the details and he chose the holy grail of Rowan Cocoon! God I love this yarn, it's so spongey and lustrous!

I took a zillion pictures, mostly due to my inebriated post-top-model-finale state.
It's to late to apologiiiiiiizzze.....












I wrote up a pattern too, but I'm still new at it. It's not particularly hard, but remembering to write down as you go is my greatest downfall. I'm usually on the go when I knit and paper and pen are never handy!



I don't to overkill with the photos, so there are tons more on the blog, and about twice that on our flickr account!

Hope you like my hat

I'm excited to try more cables now after realizing how effortless it was to get the hang of a braided stitch! I was really more intimidated by such a fab fiber. I sat and swatched for a good week or two not knowing what to choose because everything knitted up so great!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
