First up: some Malabrigo worsted! I have six skeins of the Indigo colorway that I bought years and years ago, and never figured out what to do with. What with all the snow and cold lately, I decided I needed a hat, so spent some time browsing patterns on Ravelry and finally settled on the Spiralini Hat. I'm fussy about hats -- I generally hate wearing them, because they're too snug, and make my forehead itchy, and do awful things to my hair, so I wanted something light and loose. The hat fits the bill nicely:
(Oliver the guinea pig helped me model it.)
That used up a little less than one skein. I'm using another to make the Bandana cowl, which I'm hoping will make a nice snug neckwarmer to tuck into the front of my coat, but that's also big enough that I can pull it up over my nose on really cold walks to work.
I also want to finish some works-in-progress, including two pairs of socks, a scarf, and a sweater. Which means I should get busy knitting.
