Fancy this hat!

I finished Shedir tonight, and I really like it. It isn't perfect (there's an oddly tight row, and something weird going on inside), but it's a good color and it's non-itchy, so I will keep it for myself. Of course, the weather is warming up a little here, and now I don't need a hat really at all, but if I go East for New Year's it will be put to good use. The pattern is from Knitty, the yarn is Rowan Calmer, the needles were size US4. I took out one repeat of the braided cable, and it's a good thing--I'm not sure that I'd have gotten through this with one skein otherwise. I picked up a skein of brown Calmer recently, so I may cast another one on right away. Could be a holiday gift, if I work fast!

That looks fantastic... I think you've just given me an idea for one of my next projects...
