Noo Hat and new cardi

Pattern: Noo by Dani Sunshine
Yarn: Skein Merino/Cashmere - Colourway Sterling 

I first discovered the childs version of this hat on Ravelry and commented that I wished it was available in an adult size.  To my surprise the designer said that she was working on an adult version and would I like to test knit it for her... and of course I jumped at the chance.  

The Noo hat is a quick, relaxing knit and I love the FO.  It has cute eyelets that spiral around the hat that adds interest to the knitted fabric and can be blocked into a tam shape or left unblocked for a slouchy look, which I have done.  Love it!

The weather here has started to cool down and we've had a few cool, rainy autumn days, just the right weather to start a new cardi....

I started the Larch Cardigan by Amy Christoffers out of the my Super DK yarn.  Its a bottom up cardi knit all in one piece up to the underarms where the two fronts and back are divided and knit separately.  I love how quickly this cardi is knitting up, I am just past the waist section now so fingers crossed I will have this finished in time for winter.
