Brambles Hat for Mo's B-day

In that last few weeks I've been teaching a co-worker to knit, which has revived my fiber art addiction.  Say it with me now: I NEED YARN THERAPY!

you can't see the hat and I have no make up on...why I am posting this?

I told my little sister that I would make this for her last spring (I've also got her Tshirt quilt sitting in pieces under my bed) - better late than never.  Love the results.

I used the Brambles pattern from Knitty.  The cables seem daunting (and half-way through, I was complaining about it) but it works up fast.  I found using stitch markers made the general pattern easier to memorize.  It's made in Lambs Pride worsted, a wool/mohair mix - warm enough to easily stand up to any winter weather the midwest has to offer.

I would have liked the ribbing to be more snug, but since my sister has uber-curly hair, I'm suspecting she will appreciate the looser tension.
