new hat!

I had a vision for a seed stitch beanie and I had a skein of Malabrigo worsted in Brillante. I put them together and now have a great hat! I wanted the seed stitch to go right to the edge, no ribbing, so used a smaller needle size for the first inch or so. It is simple in form, fits just right, and so cozy. When I first spotted this colorway, I knew it would be a hat for me (the color in the left photo is most accurate). More details and my cryptic pattern on my Ravelry.

And now that I got that hat out of my system, I can get back to the regularly scheduled gift knitting. Can you guess what this is?!

I hope you're all warm, wherever you are!

Let's see... those look like miniature elephant feet on the right. Or, maybe fancy footies for Kuro? Hmmm
