FO Friday: Hats Aplenty

The hat projects just won't stop! In the past couple of weeks, I have finished the following projects:

First up, the Sockhead Hat (free pattern here on Ravelry) in Manos del Uruguay Alegria in Maiz. Pardon the unmodeled shot, but I look absolutely terrible in yellow and just didn't want to subject myself or you guys to that dreadful sight. I know it seems weird to buy yarn that you know you can't wear anywhere near your face, and then knit a hat with it, but I just wanted to knit with a color outside of my usual grey/blue/green comfort zone, and I enjoyed the last project I knit in Alegria quite a bit. This particular skein hopped in my shopping cart at Webs because I couldn't resist a good sale!
Next, a Handspun hat which was knit sans pattern using the leftover gradient Merino/Silk yarn I spun for this sweater. Unfortunately, the end result was a rather large hat that doesn't fit my tiny head (which is kind of a bummer, I was hoping to keep this one!). Hence, Tyler was the somewhat reluctant model, though he wears it well. 
Lastly, my Quince-along project! This is a Cabled Hat knit with a stitch pattern from the Up, Down, All Around Stitch Dictionary using a skein of Osprey yarn from my stash.
Spoiler alert: I also have two new hat patterns in the works for later this year, and I'm sure I will be making many more hats throughout 2016, too!
