FO: beanie

I'm still here... Just not got around to blogging. I've been busy organising a load of photos for the blog and wanted to wait till they were all done before posting again, but in reality that means another month will have passed before I post. If I just make a start, that usually gets me going again.

I've actually got three FO's but not photographed them all yet. So this one will have to do for now.
Beanie for B. for Christmas:

Pattern is here (Ravelry link), it's one of Woolly Wormhead's patterns whose blog I've been reading for a while but not used her patterns before. The pattern is very well written, and I love the way the multiplied stitches turn into a spiral pattern. I used Manos del Uruguay for the yarn, which is a lovely blend of silk and merino. It's one of the softest yarns I've worked with, not itchy or scratchy at all, just incredibly soft and warm. And as we've just gone through an Arctic blast here in the UK, B. has actually been wearing this a lot!
