Hat Fever

I don't know if it is the never ending winter or just a love of knitting hats.
Or, is it the talented patterns in Boutique Knits that is driving this rage?

Saturday I cast on for Side Slip Cloche.
Worked pattern with a new to me yarn.
Mirasol Tupa a 50/50 merino silk blend, colourway 810 Deep Auburn, a rich, deep, earthy brownish red.

This yarn is luscious to work with great stitch definition.

Finished last night and hat is now blocking to achieve that desired Cloche look.

It will reside in the stash of Christmas Gifts to give this year.
