After my little sit-down with Ravelry the other day, my head was spinning with pattern ideas . . . from sweaters to shawls to socks. Before I could settle on one thing, the practical voice inside my head reminded me that it's getting cold, and I need to stay warm. Now.
Without delay I cast on one of several hats that caught my eye.
Algonquin Hat. I finished the ribbing and am a couple rounds into the body. After working with fingering weight yarn on smaller needles, this worsted weight project seems like it's flying. A new hat by next week isn't out of the question.
This hat uses two colors, and that was part of the attraction. I was waffling back and forth between colors. The green was a definite choice, but I wasn't so sure about the second color. I polled family members. While they all agreed on a second color, I'm not so sure. I still have a few rounds before I need to commit.
This week's color inspiration comes to you from one of the bins at a local market.
So many shades of orange.
