Two days after I finished knitting my sockhead Elise, my BFF who lives across the road, emailed and said she wanted a slouchy beanie. Well. I invited her over and said she could choose any wool in the stash. We narrowed it down to two - a dark Dream in Color and the light Socks that Rock Silkie. She was edging towards the dark, when I said she was getting the hat in the Silkie and she was going to love it.
And she does. And she looks too cute in it. Its as squishy and lovely as I thought it would be.
This pattern is so much fun, it's like a vanilla sock. Ribbing, followed by straight in the round, followed by decreases followed by done.
I had enough leftover yarn from my hat to make a pair of wee matching handwarmers.
