WIP Wednesday – Rosebud

I’ve been craving cables lately and thought it was high time for me to knit a new cabled hat to wear.

I chose the pattern Rosebud by Jared Flood because I have been wanting to knit this since the first time I saw it.  The yarn is some good local wool I’ve had in my stash for a while.  It is MacAusland Woolen Mill’s 2 Ply Medium in a natural heathery grey.  I like the kind of sheepy smell the wool has and the color is very similar to “Nest”, the color of the slouchy hat pictured in the pattern.

The blend of garter stitch and cables creates such wonderful texture and pleases my cable-craving 🙂

What projects have you been working on?  Have you been longing to practice a technique?  I’d love to hear all about it!
