Yet another Brooklyn Tweed pattern. Jared Flood's Fortnight is a very well written pattern, and obviously thought has been put into making it well fitting. However, unexpectedly after completing a project like Bridgewater, I felt I wasn't making progress with this hat fast enough, the cabled part seemed to be taking too long for my impatient mind. Go figure. I would also like to try knitting the version with the sort of earflaps, but maybe not immediately after completing this one. Yet I'm itching to start Leaves of Grass, an obvious two-week shawl project. I don't always understand how my mind works. But before I can do that, I need to finish some last minute Christmas knitting first.
This hat was knit with Cascade 220, which I've found a good yarn for hats for its softness. However, for cabling without a cable needle, it felt a bit splitty, so I don't plan on doing any intense cabling with it in the future.
