A Little Color

Need a little color on this surprisingly gray day?  How about a slouchy hat?
Adrienne used the beautiful Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock to knit her Sockhead Hat by Kelly McClure.  It's a freebie from Bohoknits, and she used a US4 and less than one skein of yarn.
Adrienne likes her hats VERY slouchy, and this one is just that. See?
The colors in the Misti Alpaca Sock play together so nicely, creating a nice variegated look with no striping or pooling.
We have four colorways in right now, and they are all so pretty.  Who would have thought a hat would feel good on the first of August?  Nice job, Portland.
