Cable and stripes, oh my...

Wow! Now that's a big head. My 1st attempt at a hat. It wasn't until after I finished this that I realized how important a gauge swatch is. I am a tight knitter and used the size needle the pattern called for (Cabled Hat from Vermont Fibers). Yea, I should probably frog it and do it on the next size up needle but....

Yarn is from Imagiknit (purchased last summer). The hat was a quick knit and didn't give me much grief. I did find it very difficult to finish the very tip top of the hat. Probably should switch to dpns (was done a circular needle).
