I finished my second knit project and explored the world of cable needles. It was a pretty simple hat that I saw in the fall issue of Knit Simple magazine. I chose to make a couple modifications 1) I chose not to add the pom pom to the top, and 2) I shortened the brim so that it would fit more like a beanie versus folding the brim up as the pattern called for.
Here are a couple of pictures. The one picture shows the cabling detail better while the other shows the vibrant purple yarn that I used. Again purple, it is my favorite color.
