Hats, Hats and More Hats!

My September hat parade marches on. While I sit on my butt.

And done. Should have done that ribbing on a much smaller needle though.
Declan's Hat. I made this in Shelter, the yarn called for in the pattern. I was worried about having enough yarn and might have cheated a bit on the ribbing. I really regret that since the yarn has no spring to it at all and the ribbing isn't all that deep it flares out.

Yesterday's hat, Magic Coffee Bean with Malabrigo leftovers.
Magic Coffee Baby Hat, This is leftover bits of Malabrigo Worsted. It's so cute and soft!

Barley. This is a little leftover ball of Malabrigo Rios.It's a great, free pattern. I realized when I went to take the picture that I threw in one round of stockinette in the garter section. Oops!

Slouchy Bubbles. Another nice freebie on Ravelry. I used Cascade 128 Superwash. I was craving cables. Mine doesn't slouch. I had to cut the pattern short so I wouldn't run out of yarn. Always the problem when using leftovers.

Noro One-Skein Spiral Hat. This pattern has been on and off my queue since the start of Ravelry. It's a super-simple knit that makes everyone ooh and ahh. I used a partial skein of Spud & Chloe Sweater. It's very nice yarn but hands do not enjoy knitting with cotton even in a blend.
