Koolhaas hat- FINALLY

I don't think anyone knows this about me.

There has been a hat pattern that I have drooled over for nearly 10 years. I obtained the pattern 10 years ago when I saw it, and lost it. I've had dreams about this hat, and finally. I re-purchased the pattern and began to knit it using the Madelinetosh Vintage yarn in the color way I used for this hat.
It's the Koolhaas hat by Jared Flood. I love love love Jared Flood (I've never met him, so don't get it twisted- everything he creates is drool-worthy- If I had an unlimited supply of yarn and unlimited time to knit I would want to make everything he has created). 

The pattern is pretty easy to work up. I'm actually mad at myself that I didn't pursue this earlier in life. People all over the place could have versions of this hat on their heads. Not that I won't make more, because I will. I love this hat. Love it. Just look at it!

Back to knitting I go, I've got some more hats to work on, I've got some socks to finish for my dad, and a shawl called "Water Lilies", as well as the "Aries Shawlette" from the Toshstrology Collection.

I'll be busy...because on top of all the knitting, I have the spinning thing going on. Not to mention, I'm learning how to Brioche's going to be a long knitting season.
