I needed to make Jim a hat for his birthday, which led to this:

And, lo, it was good.

So good, it led to this:

Which, in turn, led to this:

Pattern: Botanic, by Stephen West*
Yarn: Cascade 200 for the blue and grey, Elann Peruvian Highland Wool for the black, Noro Kureyon, Cascade handpaints. Less than a skein of Kureyon did the black and grey hats contrast colour.
Needles: US 6 & 7 (4 & 4.5mm) circs, the cheap-ass grey kind, because that’s the way I roll.

*Next up on the Stephen West hit parade… Herbivore. No, Daybreak. No, Herbivore.  Dang. I love them both.
