Cold Mountain hat
This is what I made with the pink wool I spun; it's a pattern from the wonderful knitty.com (one of the best sites around, lovely patterns, lots of inspiration). This one is "coronet", with a sideways cabled brim, then the stitches picked up around for the body of the hat. I added the little i-cord doo-dah on top just because I could LOL. Modelled here by a slightly bemused Bean........Quite pleased with it, and I might even keep it for myself this time :)
Forgot to say - it's called Cold Mountain as I was listening to the Soundtrack of the film whilst spinning the wool. Quite an apt name for it - thick and warm enough to wear if you found yourself traipsing up a mountain for some reason, and you'd be easily spotted in this pink colour if, heaven forbid, you got lost!
