FO: Lilac and mint hat

2011 Knit Challenge: 18 Knit, 42 to go!

Originally I planned to knit a second slouchy hat in mint, but once I worked the ribbing, I thought it would be boring with just the one color. I decided to work a design with the purple yarn, which is good because I always liked the two colors together.

Both yarn is Cascade 220 from my birthday. I think Cascade 220 is slightly thinner than Patons Classic Wool. I am not sure how I feel about this.

I woke early this morning, around 5:30, for no apparent reason. But I'm capitalizing on the extra time by drinking coffee, listening to the Morning Edition on NPR, and writing this post. What's in store for the rest of the day? Lots of errands and maybe a hike up the M. Also, I finished HP and the Order of the Phoenix. Leisure reading is the best.
