First up, the Safi Hat from the Rowan Cotton Rope Collection. I used Malabrigo merino worsted that I had left from an earlier project. Malabrigo is a joy to knit. So soft and the color is beautiful. The pattern was confusing, written in European abbreviations. I still think I got something wrong, but AH! the color and beauty of malabrigo masks it all. Hmm, this comment is strangely philosophical and superificial all at once.
