FO: Fandangle

I finished this project waaaaay back around Christmas and due to my lack of pompom-making expertise it sat in my mostly-finished-but-not-quite stack of knitting projects. With the help of a friend who lent me her pompom maker I finally put the finishing touch on my Fandangle hat. 


I'm finally coming around to pompoms on hats. This one is GIANT.


Apparently this project got me going on a colorwork kick since pretty much all the projects I have OTN have some kind of stranding or striping. It's not a bad place to be, though.


I'm very excited to have used new-ish stash from Knit Fit! in November and some older stash of reclaimed angora/wool yarn that sat around for several years. It's a dreamy combination and toasty warm to boot. 

Pattern: Fandangle by Andi Satterlund
Yarn: Spincycle Dyed in the Wool in Devilish Grin and reclaimed angora/wool.
Needles: US #5 (3.75 mm) Clover Circular Needles
Mods: None! I knit the medium size and followed the pattern with zero mods.
