naomi's carlisle hat

a couple weeks ago naomi came along to the yarn store, by the way, i totally love this store and it's not easy to not walk out of it with a loaded bag and an empty purse...
and of course i could not refuse my daughter the wish to pick some wool for gloves or a hat. the hat was more realistic to go with the yarn, as it was not a fingering weight, so we had to go and search a pattern she liked and i would be able to knit. this carlisle pattern was quickly intriguing me and of course i was soon enough casting on. it was an exciting knit, nothing too hard and the pattern easy to follow and coming to me very naturally. i love the merino superfine, knitting with a #3.5 (european).
and now as she is wearing it, i'm so happy to look at this different kind of hat.

this is the second thing on my needles, a little pebble, coming off soon.
