While there haven't been any finished objects for a while, there has been knitting going on. I finally finished my Toorie hat (I hope the link works) and love the funky, fun results. It'd be pushing things to say I'm cool and stylish wearing it, but I can pretend I am!

This was a great one-skein wonder in Malabrigo Silky Merino (in the color Indiecita). There wasn't quite enough yarn for pom-poms, so I went with a thin grosgrain ribbon instead. I might make another with pom-poms. I loved making the hat, the construction was unusual, but fast.

Normally I'd say May wasn't a great month for wool hats.....but that's not true this year. It's been quite chilly -- with well below normal temperatures.
