That's the Assymentrical Cable Hat from One Skein by Leigh Radford in Lamb's Pride Bulky, color M-10 Creme
I made the Women's size and its a bit large. Of course, I didn't check my gauge, so ymmv. It would be good for a man's head. My man doesn't like the color, so it won't be on *his* head.
I cast on for the Single Cable scarf from the Rib and cable Quartet in the same book in Cascade 220 (color 9325, not accurately represented here. Its a softer shade with a bit more grey than this, really.)
Its too skimpy for what I had imagined, although I like the pattern and I think I'll try it again in a bulkier yarn, like Crystal Palace Iceland of which I have one skein of Claret, color 9719. Its a bit of a shorter skein than the yarn called for in the book but it'll knit up quickly and I can see what I end up with.
In the meantime, I've got almost three inches of 3x3 rib for a Feeling Fuzzy from the Yarn Girls guide to Simple Knits, in GGH Soft Kid in color 055, a pale-ish pink with a bit more lavendar than cotton candy would have. I'd love to finish it tomorrow.

is looking particularly blobbish up top because it is set up on the needles for the three-needle bind off called for to close the shoulders. After that, I'll pick up the neck stitches and rib myself a cowl.
Then, I'll swatch for the Nora Gaughan minisweater. I have enough Morehouse Merino Sliver in Vetiver but I'm not certain how the cables will look with a thick/thin yarn. We shall soon see. Looking back over my previous posts I notice that yarn has a lot of potential uses.
I took lots of knitting photos this morning of WIPs and former FOs, so I have lots of blogfodder stored up.
This is the first post I've done in the new Blogger. I'm realy excited about the ability to label. I may go back to old posts and add some labels.
