After Christmas Treat for me

The slouchy hat. I've been putting lots of slouchy hat patterns in my queue, but I just haven't seemed to find the time to get around to any of them, so on the 26th of December I started an after christmas treat for myself. I had some nice chunky wool from and exchange and I thought a quick hat might just be the instant gratification project I needed while I tried to keep warm after all that Christmas snow. The wool was soft and nice to work with, and since its the world's best color it was even better.

I started the hat in the evening and finished it the next morning.

Pre blocking its slightly cone-head shaped, but after I stretched it around a plate and let it dry, its much slouchier. The cables are nice and squishy and it does keep my head quite warm. I've already warn it out a couple of times and I love it. I'm glad I took the time to make myself a little treat.
