Hat pattern/Manhattan, Mixed drink by Amy Christoffers. Yarn/ The Uncommon Thread, BFL sock in Lust.

 Oh I'm so so late this month! This hat was supposed to be finished before the end of December, but you know how hectic December can be! I came back to France for the holidays, and since I like to travel "light", I didn't carry any luggage with me, except a teeny-tiny bag! I was too scared to bring some knitting with me in the plane, even though I was pretty convinced the night before, that I would bring socks. But it didn't happen! So I took a week off knitting, and to be honest, it was pretty tough.

So I got this hat finished and blocked yesterday evening, and managed to snap some pictures today despite the poor light that we have. I loved, loved loved knitting this pattern and the yarn is such a luxury. I grabbed this skein very quickly at the Uncommon thread, because as soon as the shop is updated, most of the yarns are already sold out! And now, I can really understand why. I really hope that I will get a chance to grab another skein later this year!

What about you? What have you been knitting lately?

• This hat has been made for the Knit twelve hats in a year challenge.
