This is the Pasha Hat by Jane Richmond. I knit this in some great yarn called Queensland Collection Rustic Wool DK. I love this colourway, it's dark grey but with lighter bits and it looks so nice! I need a model to show this hat off properly but she was away at a basketball tournament this weekend.
I finished Trudy's Mittens for Trudy at the post office. I think they may be too small but they're warm and fun and a great stash buster. The pattern is a free one on this blog. This is the second time I've knit this pattern and it's great. I'd knit another pair for sure.
Finally I wove in the ends on the Dragon Oak Mittens. This is an Alana Dakos pattern of Nevernotknitting fame. She has some really amazing patterns out there and this one is very fun to knit. I like the cabled leaf and the way the increases and decreases form the border around the leaf.
What I don't like is the way the leaf cants to side. I find myself constantly tugging it over to the center. The thumb also pulled the palm fabric. So the mittens feel funny to me. The Superstar tried them on and she thought I was crazy. They're also a gift knit.
I bet you think that's all... but...
I still have a pile of projects waiting for finishing. Looks like next Friday will be a Finishing Friday too!
