For some reason, the colour is way off in these pictures. It's a really gorgeous rich green but no matter what I did, I couldn't get the camera to capture it. But these shots really show the pattern well so I thought I would share them.
I learned how to cable with this hat. I had never tried before because it seemed so complicated but I'm happy that I finally bit the bullet and tried it. It's not as hard as I thought! Obviously it also depends on the pattern but overall, cabling is pretty simple.

Not exactly slouchy eh? Oops!
But I'm still totally in love with it.
And the colour, the colour is so awesome in real life. These pictures really don't do it justice. So instead of appreciating the colour, just appreciate the knitting. I've got skills.
Speaking of wicked awesome knitting skills, I'm going to share with you my new mittens that my friend Tasha over on Artistmouse's Blog made for me. SHE'S got skills.
The pattern is called Fiddlehead Mittens and they are incredible. Not only are the colours awesome and the pattern awesome, they are double-lined! So they keep my hands cozy warm in all this crappy
Maybe one day I will be as good at knitting as Tasha is. For now though, I'm happy with my hat.
