i love this new hat
and with good reason! soft, silky yarn in a wool/acrylic blend, natural colors... it's supposed to be "high plains variegated" by patons shetland chunky or something, but i ordered some of that and it doesn't match exactly. it's similarly colored but the browns aren't as dark as the one in this hat.
i casted on 70 sts on number 8 needles for the rib, and then kf&b'd every stitch with circular 11s and just went from there. i ended up knitting the last bit using the circulars and two pens, since i don't have size 11 dpns and really wanted to finish the thing.
oh, and as you can see i cut and colored my hair :)
cheers everyone, i hope you're settling into fall :)
