I know I said that I wouldn't talk about my new jacket anymore, but, well,
I had to do a hat.
It was only logical. My only other hat is in pastel colors, and simply wouldn't do next to my red, black and gray coat. So, inspired by a customer knitting my Scalloped-Edge Hat, it dawned on my that a black version of said hat would be the ideal accessory to my new jacket. And being that we're in the middle of a cold snap, it made perfect sense!
So yesterday afternoon I cast on, and by evening I had my new hat.
A perfectly wonderful distraction.
