FO Friday: Adiantum Hat & Curls 2 Winner

Last weekend, I finished the Adiantum hat by Woolly Wormhead:

I used a skein of yarn that had been lurking in my stash for a while; I think I won it in a Holla Knits giveaway, it's a lovely blend of alpaca and silk from Hampden Hills:

I'm a big fan of using stitch markers to keep track of a repeating pattern so that I don't get lost as I knit across the round - it always speeds things up and decreases the chances of getting way off pattern but not noticing it til I've knit all the way across the round. And you can't argue with the results - perfection!

Silk/alpaca knit slouchy hat.


Also, congratulations to Laurpud, who won a copy of Curls 2 in my recent giveaway - I'll be in touch to arrange delivery of your prize. Be sure to check out my full review of the book if you missed it!
