I finally finished my first knitted hat! This pattern is called Autumn by Jane Richmond (she's one of my favorite designers). I've talked about it before here, back in August when I first started teaching myself to knit. It only takes a few hours to make, and it's super cozy. I particularly love slouchy hats like this because they stay on my curly-haired head a lot better than most others.
I plan on making another hat just like it in this tweedy barley color that I picked up over the weekend. I will eventually get around to those other projects on my list, but I have to allow myself a slight deviation from the plan here and there. It's my way of living on the edge.
