I took my wee skein of luxury yarn and immediately wound it into a ball.
I have had Jane Richmond's Pasha pattern laying around for a while, so I whipped up a hat. It was supposed to be in DK weight yarn, but I didn't let that stop me.
The yarn was hand-dyed, and apparently still had a lot of dye in it. It turned my fingers blue. But, it created this fascinating spiral on the hat. I kept watching it grow and grow.
It is a little bit slouchy. I did an extra couple repeats of the pattern to compensate for the fingering yarn. DK really would create a better slouch (rather than the mere flop I have going on here), but I like it all the same. This is before I blocked it, so the lace will be more pronounced.
A cheerful hobo with a spirally, hand knit hat. This is probably going in the Christmas present pile. Who wants it (aka who wants to make me something in return for an awesome cashmere hobo hat)?
