I am now blocking this hat to show the stitch detail better, and to get a better fit in the front. Also you will note in the last picture that I have a dangling yarn end that needs to be woven in....but, we are moving in less than a week, so please accept the imperfections of this post. Blogging is taking a back seat to packing this week!
Halley's Comet Hat is another Marnie MacLean pattern, like Chapeau Marnier. It knit up very quickly, and is a pretty pattern that goes well with the Argosy scarf. You can't beat Ravelry for helping to find the right pattern for the job!
Here is a picture of Argosy in progress. The diagonal striping turned out lovely with the Spunky Eclectic Celebration handspun. If I needed to get in the mood for autumn, these colors would do it. But I relish autumn without any help at all....this just added to the delight!
Finally, a smile from Mercy, who looks great in these colors!
