I don't know if I like this hat on me yet. It's cute and it feels good when it's on, so I'll give it a test drive I guess.
The pattern is the Swirls Cap, which is available on Ravelry. It's a well-written pattern and only took me a day to finish crocheting it, plus one overnight to let it dry after blocking. You probably wouldn't have to block the hat if you used a different yarn, but I used Moda Dea Silk 'n Wool Blend and it definitely needed to be blocked. The Moda Dea also grew a little during blocking even though I tried to keep the original size. It obviously still fits, but if I were to make something else with this yarn, I'd keep that in mind. It's a nice yarn...it's soft and the color is pretty.
Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Is there a tool or notion that you seem to always lose? For me, it's my G crochet hook. I have bought 3 G hooks this year alone! Yesterday I started making a Swirls Cap and, of course, it called for a G hook. And, of course, I couldn't find mine. So, off to Joann's I went (lucky for me it's only .8 mile away!) to buy yet another G hook. Size G crochet hooks are also great for doing an alternate cable cast-on in knitting, btw. So what tool or notion disappears on you?
