Hats

How much do I love the Foliage pattern? A lot. I made the worsted weight version for myself. Don't laugh--it's really hard to take a photo of yourself wearing a hat.


And three of the bulky weight version for Christmas presents.
All in wonderful, lovely, luscious Malabrigo.

Thanks for all the nice comments about my Christmas decorations. Turns out my sister was right--the pink Santa really was originally pink. I asked my mom. I hate it when my sister is right!

I agree that self portraits of hats are hard - I had to hold off on posting about my beret till today when a friend was over. :) All of your Foliage hats look great - I want to make one, thought it involved too much 'thinking' for travel knitting. :) Thanks for stopping by!

I love the hats! Great colors, great pattern, and you can't miss with Malabrigo. Your Christmas decorations are beautiful. I always hate to take ours down because I love having all the pretty things around me. We should have Christmas year-round!

The hats look great. I love that orangy one.
I have yet to use Malabrigo. What a great pattern to use it for. I may have to make a trip to the lys.
