To continue with the headshots, here are a couple photos of a Foliage that I made over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. It'll be a holiday gift for my judge's case manager.

(Please excuse the hair. I'm getting it cut this Saturday; that will hopefully reduce the shagginess factor.)

What a fast, easy pattern--I finished the hat in a day, I think. And nice and stretchy, too! It fits nicely on the head and covers the ears--a hat requirement, in my book. As a bonus, it used fairly little yarn; I was able to make a pair of Fetching mitts for one of my co-clerks out of the rest of the skein. I used the recommended Malabrigo worsted in I think the Indigo colorway, and I love the way it turned out.

The color in the top picture is probably more accurate. I fiddled around with the color in GPG's Photoshop and couldn't really get it to turn out right, probably because last weekend was cloudy and blah.

Pattern: Foliage
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted, Indigo colorway
Needles: US7, 16" Inox circular; Brittany Birch DPNs
Recipient: Judge's Case Manager

The yarn is souvenir yarn from a trip to Santa Barbara over Labor Day weekend to attend a friend's wedding. It's my first time knitting with Malabrigo, and I love it! SO soft. And SO pretty. It knits up into nice, squooshy things--I love how soft and comfy the hat felt on my head. I will definitely use more Malabrigo in the future!
