This afternoon has been spent working on my brambles hat, and loving it. It's been a long time since I had a pattern with cables and texture in it, it has been so engrossing knitting it up and seeing the pattern develop. The yarn is working up into a lovely, thick and soft fabric and I know this hat is going to be so nice and warm. Pity the weather is warming up.
I have finished the body of the hat and am ready to start the crown decreases. I plan to try to finish it tomorrow, soak it and block it, probably with a plate. We'll see.
