slouchy bubbles winter hat

In my wardrobe post I mentioned one thing I realized while pouring over the into-mind website. That realization was that I don’t have winter gear that makes me feel coordinated. Thankfully that’s pretty easy to fix! Winter wool hat to the rescue:

I find it pretty funny that once again I’m taking hat pictures while crouching down. You can kind of tell, haha! I’ve needed a really warm winter hat, and after my last cabled hat I knew I wanted to make another one. I really like cables on knit hats! For this warm version I thought a thicker, part alpaca wool would make for a dense and warm knitted fabric, and wow – does it ever. Granted, it hasn’t gotten biting cold yet, but I stayed toasty warm in near-freezing temperatures, and I’ve even had to take it off climbing hills. I’d say that’s mission accomplished!
