Inspired by Peg, I decided to try the Tweedy Beret from this winter's issue of IK using my Lavold Angora blend yarn.
I'm very happy with this hat! I love the yarn's soft halo, the hat fits well on my head with out crushing my hair, and it doesn't feel like it would blow off. And its warm!
Hats are hard. Even in the stores, I'll see a hat, think it's cute, try it on and bleh. So knitting one is a magic trick. Even if you get gauge, and knit the pattern perfectly, you never know if the style itself will look good on. But I figured, I'm having fun with my yarn, and if this hat doesn't fit me, it will be a Christmas present for someone.
I'm happy I'm the lucky recipient.
