Koolhaas hat- Last FO of 2007

Koolhaas hat
Last FO of 2007.

I got the yarn Sat. This was a fun knit, but it took a day to get used to the twisty stitches.

Koolhaas hat.
malabrigo yarn - worsted. not even one skein.
size 6 & 8 16" addi circs.

Its true. malabrigo is very soft to work with, and warm to wear.
This hat will go to a friend who's birthday is in 2 weeks. yes, I know. I look like I really love it (I DO!) but she asked for it.
good news- I have another skein of this malabrigo!
;-)

P.S. I know I have not spelled out my 2008 resolutions. I am still working on the short list. One thing comes up on all the short lists- steeks.......................................

Happy New Year!!

It looks great! I had some issues getting used to the twisted stitches too - and then once I did I was worried I'd keep doing them that way all the time!
Happy New Year to you!

Steeks? Eeek! Brave you. Me, I simply cannot bring my mind to believe that cutting stitches is RIGHT. I know, I know - but still, when it comes to it, I always wimp out.

Happy New Year to you from a wild, wet and windy West Cork.

I love that hat. I have to add it to my to do list - my goddaughter and her sister seem to think hats are THE coolest thing right now....

Happy 2008 -- look forward to seeing your goals!

The hat looks like a great way to end 2007. I'm looking forward to visit your blog in 2008, and see your coming FO's in 2008. Happy New Year! :-)

How funny, Koolhaas was my final 2007 knit as well! In a very similar color, too, I might add. It looks much nicer with your curly hair, though! :)

Steeks are definitely on my to-do list, but it's such a long list it might be awhile before I get to them!

Happy New Year Hila, I look forward to reading more of what life sends your way.

That hat is awesome. Guess your friend doesn't read your blog or else she'd be drooling!
