I love, love, love knitting with Malabrigo. Almost as much as I love knitting hats. Which is kind of strange…because I don’t wear hats. I think it stems from my knitting ADD. Not only do you get instant gratification, but you can experiment with different stitches and yarn with no real time or materials commitment. It’s the perfect “one skein” project. That spendy hank of handpainted you couldn’t resist is now justifiable. A couple of hours and Wah-lah! You have not only a hat, but a sense of accomplishment!
Miss Kitty is a big fan of this hat, too.
