Since I started using Ravelry, I have been completely neglecting posting in Craftster.  So here is my most recent finished object: Koolhaas by Jared Flood.  The yarn is Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk Aran, and I ended up going down two needle sizes, using a size 6 and 4, to get gauge. I used two skeins, and had just one yard left after casting off.  I love the yarn, but I wish alpaca didn't make me itch so much and the yarn smells kinda bad when I wear the hat in the rain.

This hat took me two days.  I could have finished it in one, but all those cables slowed me down a bit.

I love the stitch pattern.

My head isn't shaped this weird in real life, I swear.

Bad camera-phone picture that shows the color most accurately.

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.

if theres only one truth that i know, its that the stitches that we've made are the best i've ever sewn'- Josh Pyke

I really like the pattern of the body of the hat Cheesy and the color of yarn. I think I would like to try this but maybe with thinner yarn.

i love this hat.

I need to break down and accept the fact that not every great pattern is free. of course, it's not expensive, i just always go to knitty or knitting pattern central.

yours is beautiful, i really like that color

I am quite jealous that you found this an easy knit.  I have tried to knit this hat more than once and simply cannot get it to happen!  Your's is great!
