Hey Craftsters!  I knit a hat!

It's the Trilobite hat from Knitty, knit with size 6 needles and Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran yarn.  I used just slightly over one skein, so I have enough left over to make one for my bio-nerd brother if I cut a few rows off the ribbing.

I cast on the day the summer issue of Knitty came out and was the second person on Ravelry to finish it.  It's a little frustrating having a nice new winter hat finished in the middle of the summer, but from when I tried the hat on, it's nice, soft, and warm.  The yarn is silk, cashmere, and merino, and considering how itchy any kind of wool usually is for me, I think this yarn is a miracle.  The color isn't one I would normally like (I got the yarn in a mystery bag from discountyarnsale.com), but it really works for this hat.

The pattern is GENIUS and I can't wait for the weather to cool down so I can wear it!

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

It turned out very well!! 
I hate itchy yarn too, and will look into that blend Smiley
