Hats, Holidays and Headaches

It's official. The holidays are here. Work is crazy, there are tons of people on 34th St. and I'm knitting gifts. I only decided to knit two presents this year. Both for co-workers. Both hats. And both quick knits.

Colorimetry for my manager. She's very sporty and loves blue.

And a very slighty slouchy hobo hat for the girl who writes in the same dept as me. Shes very classic with a touch of vintage.

I also made Allen a hat. He wanted one made entirely of cashmere. (who doesn't?!) I used Debbie Bliss Pure Cashmere and was inspired by the Cosima pattern in Hip Knit Hats. My yarn was at a different gauge so I improvised. It came out great. I love it so much that I'm going to make one for myself in different colors.

And finally (and I do mean finally. I'm sick of making hats.) I made myself Hannah. I had a lone skein of Misti Alpaca chunky laying around and knew that it was fate. I added a flower from Nicky Epstein's Knitted Flowers. Now I can wear a hat and have a ponytail!

And of course it wouldn't be the holidays without my tree. Here are some of the hats under it.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

A hat made out of cashmere sounds so decadent. All of your hats look lovely.
