FO: Pom-pom hat



I needed a quick and easy knit, big needles and lovely yarn. And now I'm in love! I can't take it off! I think I'm gonna glue it to my head.

Oh... I look tired on this one!

When I casted off the first Interlocking Leaves sock, I was kinda fed up. I mean, I love socks, but these are taking forever! I decided to treat myself with some Cascade Yarns Ecological wool in Silver Gray, Us 10s and a little bit of magic loop. It only took 1 evening and 2 subway rides to knit it. Awesome! Plus, this puppy was in my queue for ages! I HAD to knit it!
Can you guess who's the designer? The one and only Hannah Fettig! If you don't know her yet (in what obscur and retreated part of the world are you living in?!?!), I strongly suggest you to 1) buy the Knitscene Fall 2010 magazine 2) Visit her blog, Knitbot 3) Fill your queue with her gorgeous yet wearable designs! I already have the yarn for the Wispy cardigan, and I'm planning on doing her Lettuce pullover, her Lapis Yoke pullover and her Elemental boatneck pullover one day. They're all in my queue!

Ok guys, now it's time to go back to homeworks, sock knitting and yarn winding... yep, because I'm sketching and prepping a new design! The last one that I was working on didn't came out great. I didn't even finish it, I just frogged it! But this one... I've been thinking about it for some time now. And I'll give you a hint: it's a men design! Stay tuned!

I love the hat. It really suits you. What a massive pompom. It looks really great and the grey is such a good colour to show up the design.

I have just come across Hannah Fettig and want to do the Wispy Cardi. I have added the others to my queue. I must stop adding and start knitting. I am looking forward to your new design.

Love your pom pom hat. Pompoms are really so fun, there should be more of them out there.

I think pompoms are the thing this winter! You might just be a trend setter. At least for me cos I'm making a baby hat with a pompom (ahm, it's on the listof things to make...)
