i wanted a more fitted "boyish" hat, and i really like this one...just wish it was a little more snug. this was a really easy patterm, kind of weird that its knit flat though.

i love this yarn so much! if i could i would only knit with malabrigo the rest of my days!!! :D

i just got back from vacation in la and i had the BEST time! it was my first time going anywhere west of texas, and i wasn't sure how i would like it as i'm an nyc girl ;) but it was so much fun, the weather was beautiful and it was so fun being able to finally be the tourist. hehe

of course i went to an lys and got myself some vacation yarn! i got this and also some malabrigo that you will be seeing shortly! this was a really quick knit, normally cables really get on my nerves because it feels so fiddly but it wasn't so bad. the yarn is really soft and nice and warm...i finished it just as the weather got alot nicer! lol

it was hard coming back to the city, maybe its time i trade in the east for the west coast. ;)
