Pattern: Kittyville hat from Stitch n Bitch
Yarn: Berroco Peruvia in Avocado, less than 1 skein
Needles: Takumi bamboo size 8
Notes: My knitting impulses seem to be strong lately. Last night I thought “Hmm… I’ve never made that kitty hat I wanted to last year.” Followed by “Man, that Peruvia (from the Tilted duster) is not froggable!” I combined the two, and now I have a hat that cements my “crazy cat lady” image. I left off the earflaps, because I don’t care for them, and I decreased more quickly than the pattern called for since Peruvia has a pretty large row gauge. My ears are done in garter stitch, since I didn’t like how they looked in seed stitch. It was really hard placing the ears, but I managed! It’s soft and warm, and I like it quite a bit!
Leon, however, is not amused. He seems to be convinced that this is some sort of grotesque mockery.
Poor kitty. He is so mistreated.
I swatched for Veste Everest last night, using some heather green cascade 220 I have in the stash, and I think I will cast on tonight. Hopefully it will be a quick project, and certainly I could use a vest! At the same time I’m planning on making the wrap I spoke of yesterday. I’m wearing my CPH today, and I just love Kathmandu Aran so much that I want to work with it again!

wow the hat is so cute. Love the color
that hat is so cute on you! and such a wonderful color.
Cute hat! And your indignant cat is hilarious.
That hat is killing me…and Leon will have his revenge, I fear!
I think this must be the time of year for strong knitting impulses. I’ve cast on for projects like mad in these last few weeks!
I love the hat – so cute!
Too cute! Love the look on Leon’s face! Classic!
Is it possible to see a complete picture of the cardigan you are wearing here. I have a strong passion for cardigans and love this kind of button-up hoodie.
Warm greetings, Cardianne
