Not so fond...

I've been doing a lot of sweater knitting, but everyone needs some FO gratification now and again. So here is the Opus Spicatum hat that I just finished. It was a UFO for a while, but I just finished it recently. I like the hat, but I'm not terribly pleased by the way the green in the variegated runs into the solid and obscures the pattern. I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca as the solid and Mountain Colors River Twist as the variegated. Next time I think I would use 2 different colors of double stranded Road to China Light.

The pattern is free from Kelbourne Woolens and there are great photos of the pattern here.

It looks like a lawn full of leaves. Perfect for autumn.
