WIP: Sock Hat

I have yet another project on the needles! This past week brought some sample work so my regular projects are on hold until I get it done. I cast on a hat for knit night last week so I would have something simple to knit. 

This yarn was a gift from a friend and has languished in my stash for several years. 

The yarn is Sleep Season Goods Sock Yarn in the color Sassafras and is 100% wool. Initially, this yarn was destined for socks but the lack of nylon and the light variegation changed my mind. Hat it is! This is a great project for knitting on the go and I'm happy to use some older stash!


  1. I like this kind of projects! Just knit and be happy! :)

  2. The yarn looks great as a hat, love the subtle variegated colours!

  3. I love knitting with deep stash, especially when it was gifted. Beautiful pattern choice for that yarn.

  4. Ooh, I love that light variegation! I love plain light hats like this, they're perfect comfort knitting :)
