Woolly Wormhead Mystery Hat!

Once I began knitting in earnest, I quickly discovered favourite designers and patterns, as I'm sure we all do.  For hats, I also lean towards the fabulous Woolly Wormhead, who never fails to have something amazing in whatever yarn weight or style I'm looking for.  That said, my hat stash is rather poor because a) I have a teeny head and always make my hats too bit in my refusal to admit I have a child size noggin and b) I look bloody ridiculous in the majority of hats!

Last month I finished a hat that had been in my queue for ages - the gorgeous Mrs Jekyll & Little Hyde which I'd stashed the Holst Garn Supersoft for sometime ago.  Although just realised I have no blocked photos!

I absolutely LOVE the finished hat and definitely think thinner yarn weight hats are my new favourites!

With that in mind I couldn't help but sign up for the Woolly Wormhead Mystery Hat KAL.  I finally decided on the skein of Countess Ablaze Count Cashmerino Sock in Radioactive Raspberry Jam and the first instalment of the pattern was released on Saturday.  However, I had to cast on a day late as I was out at the theatre indulging in our current am-dram obsession, this time it was West Side Story by the Long Eaton Operatic Society.  I'm loving the result so far after completing the first clue - the provisional cast on resulting in a fabulous folded double brim...I'm really looking forward to the next clue!

Whilst I wait I've cast on with a new yarn for me - Bergère de France Idéal. 

It's a lovely feeling yarn and is knitting up really nicely on the 3mm needles.  I've decided on a pair of fingerless mitts for my sister, Narelle's, birthday and so am using the turquoise Calanque to make a pair of Hermione Hearts Ron Fingerless Gloves as I love the combination of lace and cables!
