Morgan Hat

In this Fall issue I fell in love with the Morgan hat. I find this pattern extremely attractive, even in Tangy. I tested the gauge of a few yarns I have here and I think that Noro Kureyon should fit. So I started it yesterday.

The technique used id the Double circular needles, a bit tricky at the beginning but not too annoying after a few rows. Let's see how it goes on.

Do someone of you have any suggestions on what to use for the brim? The explications are not too clear to me, and I0m not sure in Milan, Italy I will be able to find a "brim" store. What could I use instead of cardboard?

Finally Foliage (hat)

I've finally the right yarn for my own Foliage Hat. I love this pattern, I've tried it last winter but my yarn was too this and I had to give up.

At the last yarn sawp in milan, though, I got a pretty yellow ball, wich had the same gauge than the Malabrigo used for the foliage pattern, ad ta-dah! Here it is. Precious, fast and very pretty!

It only took me one day to make, and I'm very happy with the result!
