Love Your Library, vol. 27

The minions are growing! And in the meantime, I busted out a hat to add to my gift-giving pile. This is another pattern I loved so much I'm making it again--Pioneer Peak. I made my first one back in February, and after weighing it realized I had barely enough scraps of Malabrigo Mecha leftover to make a second one. And now I did! I love how fast this pattern is--easily a knit it in one night of television watching pattern.

Pattern: pioneer peak (link to my Rav project page)
Needles: size 8 for ribbing, size 10 for body of hat
Yarn: leftover scraps of malabrigo mecha (colorway: whale's road), used approx. 90 yards
Mods: skipped a few of the resting purl rounds in the decrease section since I was playing yarn chicken at the end!

So far this year I've had more luck repeatedly knitting patterns I have in my library more than anything else it seems. Oh well--at least I'm getting my money's worth, right?
