On The Needles - An Unoriginal Hat

In the spirit of Nicole's KKCO (Keep Calm Craft On) blog series, I am sharing what's currently on my needles.

I am the first to admit that I suffer from Knitting A.D.D.  I get all fired up about starting new projects.  Yet sometimes struggle to finish others.  What's up with that?  Why is it more fun to cast on for a new project than it is to finish up an old one?

In any case...Despite having not yet finished my Give A Hoot mittens, I have started Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's ever popular Unoriginal Hat.  I couldn't resist this amazing colorway of Malabrigo Rasta.  It screams autumn, doesn't it?  There's something about Malabrigo...It's just so comforting to knit.  It has to be the softest merino in the world!

Thought I'd share a few pics I took this morning in our yard.  
Nothing's more beautiful than fall in Colorado!


  1. OH my! That pattern and colorway so beautifully together. It looks so squishy :)

  2. That hat looks so nice and warm!
