tax time hat

When my dad was here last month, we worked on my taxes together. While he was going through my paperwork and filling out some forms, I started knitting this hat using Wool of the Andes Bulky hand dyed in Galaxy and Kim's Hat pattern from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.

I've never thought of myself as a purple person, but I love this colorway. I used it around Christmas time to knit this hat for my sister.

The spiraling stripe looked really cute on her, but it wasn't exactly what I wanted for my hat, so I doubled up the yarn to break up the pooling and knit it on size 11 needles. It knit up so fast that I was done with the hat before my dad was finished with my taxes!

I've put the finishing touches on it now. It's still been cold enough here that I have been getting some use out of it already...

I'm also really excited about Knit Picks' new Comfy Bulky, I think I might use Blackberry to knit a scarf or cowl to match. It's so so soft. Although, hopefully spring is just around the corner and I won't need a scarf anytime soon!
