I cast on my first hat of the year on January 1st and I finished it on January 5th. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. The pattern, Twig Lace Cap, is from Lace One Skein Wonders and I made it out of Rowan Pure Wool Worsted. This is a brand new yarn from Rowan and it will be showing up in the shop mid-January. It is a nice yarn, it is machine washable and I enjoyed knitting with it. The pattern was well written and the repeat was easy to memorize once you got going. I did make a mistake, but I do not think it makes a big difference.
Hat number two here I come!!
