January KAL: GOAL!!

As I mentioned here, I joined a January Puck This! KAL on Ravelry, in which you make three hats before the end of the month. Hat #1 was previously posted, so here are details on #2 and #3!

Koi in Spring

Details: Spring Cap by Wooly Wormhead
Yarn: Handspun, purchased on Ravelry, from TheKnitrix, approx. 141 yards
Needle: Size 7 circular
Time: 8 days
Recipient: maybe me
Thoughts: The pattern was a bit tedious at times, what with all the yos and k2tog, in combination with the handspun yarn. On the other hand, I think this yarn was a perfect choice for the pattern. I love the way it looks, and although I was trying to use up all of it with this hat, I'm rather pleased that I have enough left to make another small project.

Wesley, by Kate Gagnon
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool Merino, white (approx. 90 yds) and red (approx 40 yds), KnitPicks Wool of the Andes, Amber Heather (approx 40 yds), total: approx 170 yds

Needles: Size 6, 8 and 10
Time: 1 week
Recipient: definitely me.
Thoughts: I love this hat. It was an incredibly fun pattern. The colors work well together, and it makes for a very impressive FO, in my opinion. It has a decent amount of slouch. I used a bigger needle for the majority of the hat, and it's very roomy. Love, love, love.

My January goal is complete!
