My creamy cabled Off Piste hat is done. It is very soft, comfy, and cute, what more could you want in a hat? Aimee, owner of Knit N’ Needle Yarn Shoppe, really did an awesome job designing this. The pattern is super fun and pretty easy. I made this with Malabrigo Twist in Natural and just love that yarn.
So I had to settle for the self portrait thing for now. I might add on a better picture later, but couldn’t wait to share…
Lately I have really developed a love for cream + cables. I love them together, so soft and winter-y and the natural color makes the cables really stand out.
My thing for white/cream combined with cables started earlier this winter when I was watching the movie The Holiday. There is a beautiful cabled cardigan (cashmere of course) that Cameron Diaz wears when she’s in the little (oh so perfect) English cottage and meets Jude Law’s character. I instantly fell in love with it and googled it for a pattern to make one just like it. I was surprised and so happy to find the Fireside Sweater that mimics Cameron’s cardigan. There’s a beautiful Fireside Sweater on Posh Knits. Mine will look just like that. =) Isn’t it the perfect winter cardigan? Maybe I’ll be super ambitious and tackle that for my March project. Heck, I better start on that now if I want to finish by the end of March.
Even though I finished this in February, I’m still calling it my January knit for my Knit 12 in 2012 project, along with the cowls. I have three weeks for a February project, and I’m still stuck on hats! I almost want to make another Off Piste but somehow make it a little chunkier. So I have a fetish for hats.
Anyway, I’m pretty sure I’ve made up my mind on what to make this month, I’ll be back soon to show you the work in progress. =)
