I fell in love with the Nutmeg hat by Norah Gaughan. I love her designs. The hat is knit at a perfect gauge for City Tweed Heavy Worsted. I am determined to expand my hat collection and the range of "warm" toned colors in my wardrobe. What could be easier than this quick knit hat in a "new" color for me - Morning Glory. I think it is a nice "warm" purple that looks good against my face.

Check out the lovely details of this hat. It was a new experience for me because it was knit flat and then seamed to form the hat. A bit of a problem because I have no experience seaming knit fabric because I am a knitting-in-the-round fan. I decided that I needed some help to finish my hat.



And look how well it turned out!




I imagine that as soon as the weather begins to cool, every knitter is compelled to knit something WARM! But, a sweater doesn't have the instant gratification that is needed. But, a hat? That is perfect! So my next Knitting Buddy drawing will be for

Two Balls of City Tweed Heavy Worsted in you choice of color so you can knit up a hat of your choice.

All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog entry (short or long) and I'll randomly choose from the entries. The drawing will be on September 25, 2009.

You did a great job with the hat and it looks so warm that I will have to start one. I love the colors.

Sounds like you had a blast knitting your hat! Very pretty looking hat too!

I'll have to try to knit a hat flat and do the seaming, it sounds interesting, though I have to admit I'm a bit afraid of seams...

It came out so beautiful! I'm in hat mode right now too, preparing for Autumn, despite the fact it's expected to be in the 90's today! I know it will get here soon enough. That City Tweed is so yummy!

I have Norah Gaughan's book Knitting Nature and made the Sunflower Tam & Target Wave Mittens - she has great designs.

Beautiful hat! I just love City Tweed. I'm have some in my stash waiting to be knit up into my new winter hat. It would be great to have some more of the lovely yarn to make another hat. You can never have too many hats in the winter.
