A Hat For Me!

At my casual job, names are drawn for a Secret Santa gift swap.  I knit my giftee a Rikke hat and a matching cowl. I did not get a picture of it, mores the pity, but I liked the hat so much, I wanted one for myself. Stash diving ensued and 2 balls of Jo Sharpe Georgette were excavated from the mountain of yarn.

While knitting, I was unsure if I liked the colour. A common problem when I knit something in the pink/lilac tones. Now that it is done, I am quite pleased. It is a little longer than I expected, but I like the droopy effect, so it's all good!

Pattern: Rikke Hat
Yarn: Jo Sharpe Alpaca Silk Georgette
