Robin egg hat

I have a nice long cable now, so I can stretch this bit of Vivian out. It's wide enough, I think, but it seems short. Lol. Long rows take me forever...



So I whipped up this hat out of the choc mint dye job. Only used a third of it.







Then I capped the ends of the long circular, even though I've only got about 15 rows to go until I'm supposed to stop for a while, and cast on a sleeve. Hehe. Nice and simple pattern with a 46-stitch row.
Also did some blue dyeing, but I must resist the temptation to put dyeing on the blog. It's too quick and easy and FUN, and it will take over! I will post the dye jobs when I knit up the yarn!

I love knitting hats, they're such a fast and satisfying knit!

Hey, that dye job turned out well. The hat looks great. Like the little button flap feature on it.

That's an absolutely charming hat. I love it. Did you use a pattern, or is it more knitting genius?
