A lonely, somewhat ugly ball of sock yarn is now a hat.

Blue socks for Katherine. She's still wearing through them as fast as I knit them. I'm getting more darning practice but hoping to find the balance.

I've been wanting to venture more into colorwork with my knitting for a while now. This pattern has been in my queue for so long that I finally forced myself to prioritize it. I've been watching the Netflix Slow TV Knitting night and I LOVE IT!! After seeing all of those great mittens and sweaters I knew it was time to tackle the hat.
I really enjoyed knitting it, although, I need to work on the tension of my floats a bit more. I'd even like to try the mittens at some point but south Florida living doesn't really inspire hats and mittens.
