Wishing for Fall Foliage

So, it has been H.O.T in North Carolina this week. I have been dreaming of wearing jeans and sweaters and getting ready for Halloween and snuggling up! I though maybe a quick winter knit might help me think "cool".

The pattern is Foliage from Knitty. The yarn is Malabrigo worsted in the Ravelry Red colorway.

I really love this hat. Malabrigo is soft and warm and there is enough of a pattern to be cute and different. I am embarrassed to admit how many times I had to tink back though. Lace is tricky to tink because of the yarnovers and I would pick back up and think I was okay and then be off by one stitch. Very frustrating! And just because he got glasses and looks cute with bedhead and pajamas here's one of me with Kid Starfish:

goodness! you two are sooooo cute! and the hat is fab too! that Rav red is so striking, (I've a shawl in that colorway and love it).

We're 'lucky' to have lots of rain here so it seldom gets hot hot.

LOVE the red hat! So cute!


I see you let him get a tattoo too! LOL

Kid Starfish looks adorable in his new glasses. How surprised was he when he could see clearly again??? I remember my first pair, when I realized that trees have individual leaves.

The hat is so pretty. I love that Ravelry red on you. Here's hoping that your lovely hat brings in some cooler weather soon!


Your blog is so fun! I LOVE your red hat! Someday I will learn to knit too!

what an amazing knit hat! Love your color choice.

Hi Paige!! Nice to meet you. Are you going to the triangle modern guild's August 14th meeting? I love this hat. I am trying to teach myself to knit socks. Not easy.
