I swear my husband is responsible for my silly pose in the second picture...





Pattern: Pixie Hat from Knit Wit by Amy R Singer

Yarn Used: Paton's Classic Wool Merino in Rosewood (I LOVE this stuff!).

Needles: Size 6 circulars for main hat and size 6 DPNs for i-cords.

This took less than a week to complete (all done last week), and would have been a one weekend project if I hadn't been chasing two toddlers in between rows!  It was originally intended to be for my daughter to match some pants I knit her in the same yarn, but I cannot seem to shrink a pattern just by changing needle size.  I ended up knitting the second size when I realized I was going to need to use something ridiculous like size 2 needles to shrink it to her size.  I really don't feel like re-calculating the pattern, so I'll probably knit her a different kind of hat where I don't need a pattern (pattern-free projects make me happy, yay knitting as therapy!).  Of course, she hates anything on her head, so it's not like I could get her to wear it, anyway.

Anywho, enough rambling, what do you think???

I am really in love with the way the colors came out in the final product (on this and the little pants for my DD I knit out of it).  It also feels incredibly soft for a wool yarn, not really itchy at all.
