FO Friday: Hats, Part 2 + WWKIP & The Podcast You Should Be Watching

The stack of hats has grown over the last few weeks, and it couldn't be better timing - my aunt is about to begin her chemotherapy. I have already mailed the hats to their destination, and I hope that when they arrive, they cheer her up a bit, despite the circumstances.

The modified Rikke Hat in Canopy Fingering and Skein Cashmerino turned out quite nicely:

I also finished a super-bright Bowdoin Hat from the new issue of Holla Knits using a skein of Sincere Sheep Tenacious Sock in Vit C. I only wish I had gotten a better image of the finished hat, because it looked really great - but this is the best one I snapped before sending it off to its new home:

Also, for any Chicagoans who might be reading this, my pal Heidi from the Hands Occupied blog is hosting a WWKIP day meetup tomorrow - click here for details. It would be great to see you there! 

You should also probably check out the new video podcast Heidi has started with Allyson Dykhuizen of Sweatshop of Love and Leah Coccari-Swift of Ruby Submarine. Yarn Talk is a short and snappy look at what's trending in the world of yarn; click here to subscribe to their YouTube channel so you don't miss an episode! Their most recent one about the TNNA Trade Show is embedded below. Enjoy!
