When the white fluffy stuff comes down from the sky it sends a subliminal message to my brain saying: it is time to knit some hats! Last week, we received our very first snowstorm, the mountains had been covered for awhile but it had not come down to our elevation yet. However, when I woke up one morning, snow was all around, in one day we received close to two inches of snow, all of it melted but not before it send me searching for my yarn and needles and thus my first Winter 2009 knitted item came to life.
Out of lovely Malabrigo and size 7 and 8 needles, my second Habitat hat was born. The Habitat Hat is an original design by Brooklyn Tweed, he has some other gorgeous designs that I want to knit! The beige/cream/tan color one was the one I made last year, the blue one is the one I finished this week. I have some more Malabrigo coming my way, hoping to make another Habitat in a dark Navy.
