Blue Christmas.......

A Blue Christmas hat for me!

Diamond Beret, Free pattern on Ravelry.
Size US#7 needles
Yarn - Dream in Color, Classy (worsted weight yarn) in the Night Watch Colorway.
The pattern is great, the yarn, well......kinda meh about it. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. It's a superwash yarn, and it feels "treated." It's definitely not as soft as the other yarns I've been knitting with lately (their cashmere content doesn't help with this comparison). If you are looking for a nice, standard yarn for knits that will get a lot of wash and wear, this might be the yarn for you.

The hat enjoyed its inaugural debut on our Christmas tree trek. Please don't comment on the lack of matching accessories. I am going to crank out something more "matchy, matchy" after the Christmas knitting is done.
What's in your queue?

Love the hat! I agree - don't like too matchy-matchy. I need to finish two baby blankets, two scarves, and a shawl. Then, I'm starting on a Rowan vest. I won't be surprised if that vest jumps on my needles before the rest of the stuff gets finished!!!
