Goal #3! Hat trick completed!

Short Row Hat (January)

We have a hat trick, ladies and gentlemen! Three hats finished in January and I'd still have time for a fourth one (I think I'll stop at three though).

Short Row Hat (January)

Pattern: Short-Row Hat by Veronik Avery.
Yarn: AmiAmi Faith
Needles: 4mm, US6

I love the hat. Love. But I'm a bit sad because I've used my last skein of AmiAmi Faith. I love that yarn and it's not available anymore (as far as I know, someone correct me if I'm wrong). I'm telling you, if anyone has some skeins of this in their stash, I would be ready to buy or trade for it. I love it that much. This is my fourth Short-Row Hat and they always look gorgeous.

I think I'm suffering from the winter blues again. It happens every winter, but it usually starts at the end of February/beginning of March. It sucks, but I'll manage.

To make me feel better, I decided to shop (of course). I hadn't ordered from Knitpick in a while (I try to buy locally when I can), but I needed some new size 7 tips for my Options set. While I was there, I got new DPNs, a book and a bit of yarn. It should be here any day now. More details (and pics) when I get it!

Wow, that hat is super cute. Now I want some of that yarn too! ;-) Shop therapy is an accepted form of beating the winter blues, so more power to you!

I have problems with winter blues as well..last year was horrific. Now i'm on a whole lotta extra vitamin D and so far no blues! I'm thrilled :)
Off to look at that hat pattern - i have some noro that'd look great i think.

Yay! A hat trick! I can't believe I haven't knit that hat yet, it looks great! And KnitPicks shopping always does the body and soul good. I'm hearting their fingering yarn samplpers...

I have 3/4 of a skein of Ami Ami in my stash from one of Veronik's destashes years ago. I think I want to make that hat. Congrats on your hat trick!
