Hat Saturation

A piece of magic is a hat. ~ Martha Sliter

I think I’ve mentioned before the British Hubby and I are at the hat saturation point. Naturally, this means I cast on four different hats this month. All four are for myself. I probably should feel a bit guilty about that, but I don’t in the slightest. Any good knitter would have matching mittens, scarves and hats along with hats in various weights and colors. Two of my new hats you’ve already seen this month. They were my Road Less Traveled Hat and Eggplant Constellation.

Introducing my sixth finished wip for March: Frank in Paris Hat. It only seemed right that I have a matching hat to go with my Frank in Paris Scarf. The pattern is Turn a Square by Jared Flood. This is one of my all time favorite beanies to knit, and it’s free. The yarn is Malabrigo Rios in Frank Ochre and Paris Night.

Above is a progress photo of my Resistance Hat. Another free pattern, resist hat. Shockingly, I’m using Rios for this hat as well. It really does make great hats. This time the colors are Ravelry Red and Natural.  You can just about make out the picture shaping up in the color work section.

Brother love.

Tomorrow is the last day of Malabrigo March. I suspect there will be some last minute casting on in my future. Can I make my goal of eight wips this month?
