Portrait of a hat

Have you ever tried to take a self portrait. Much easier said than done. I always feel like I end up looking a little goofy. (note to self: get some new glasses) Anyway, forget me in the photos, check out this hat.

I just finished knitting it last night and think it is the most challenging cabled knitting I have tackled yet. I love cables, I have dream of knitting a big chunky sweater covered in cables. But after this hat I may consider holding off for a few year. Because I don't think it was the pattern that was so difficult, but just trying to knit something that demanded a bit attention along with taking care of my two little munchkins nearly drove me insane.


The pattern is Ashley knit up with Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Tidepool Heather.

Very cute! And I don't think you look goofy at all.
