A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon one amazing picture on sweaterspotter's Instagram profile. She posted this beautiful photograph of a yellowish, bubblish hat, that happened to be her newest design. As soon as I saw it, I knew that I had to knit it, sooner or later. Lucky me, I was able to test knit it! 

Oh this pattern was such a joy to knit! Bobble after bobble, you could see how the whole thing was going to turn out. And after the first repeat, I realized how brilliantly Anna wrote it down. I don't know when the pattern's going to be released, but I'm pretty sure that as soon at it will be, a lot of needles are going to click.

The yarn that I used for this project was really not the best choice though. The pattern calls for a worsted weight yarn, but I couldn't find any here, so I decided to double this sport weight instead. Even though I enjoyed knitting the pattern a lot, the yarn was a big challenge for me. It wasn't really pleasant between my fingers. So, I'm really looking forward to knitting it again, but with some exquisitely soft yarn.
