Happy New Year!!!!

I hope that everyone brought in the New Year with lots of love and happiness all around them.

In knitting news:

I've been knitting lots of hats. I think I like hats because they don't take too long and you feel like you've accomplished something while working on larger projects! Hats keep your head all warm and toasty too which ain't bad when the frigid air tries to steal all your heat.

I knit this hat for Jonathan. It's actually finished although I don't have a finished picture of it. It's made with Cascade Pastaza and the purple stripe is leftover Malabrigo Chunky from my foliage hat.

The rest of the hats are made with Noro Kureyon. I really love this yarn because of the colors. When I'm working with it I enjoy not knowing exactly what color is coming up next. I only wish they came up with actual names for the colorways. When a colorway has a name it makes everything a bit more fun and creative, at least for me.
