My Poople Hat

I can’t believe I finished this project before spring hit.  I was pretty sure I’d get about 3/4 of the way done, it would get warm and I would put it away somewhere with the rest of my UFO’s never to be seen again.  Not this time!  I used this pattern from good knit which was super simple and easy.  It would probably be fast too if I wasn’t such a slacker.  

I meant to make a size 2-3 but somehow ended up making a 1-2 so I may be stitching up another one this time next year.  I used size 6 circular needles even though it’s not knit in the round so you could use straights.  I didn’t check my gauge it’s such a small quick project I decided to just knit away.  It looked about right size-wise so I figured it would be ok.  I used a bulky weight (machine washable!) alpaca yarn from lovely yarns, a local yarn shop.  Now I feel like tackling something more ambitious… but what?  I have some books out from the library I want to look through.  I don’t know, I may be entering that dangerous I have more ideas for projects than I have time for phase.  Whenever that happens I just end up watching a lot of tv and not being very productive at all.  Another look at the hat:
