Just a random no pattern hat. Decided to throw some cables in this time and thought it was time I shared something.

Lovely! Thanks for the photo. I often wish to see what you and some others are working on. What's the color called? I really, really like it.

It's #459, but it's quite a bit brighter than the photo. The pictures I looked at online looked a little different. So either they've changed the color or it's my computer and iPad.

I'll see if I can get a better pic in daylight. This one was on my range top with what I think is halogen lighting.

Beautiful detail, Jan. The cables grow out of the ribbing in a lovely flow that gives such a finished look.

Looking great! I even like the color whatever it is! lol

I love the colour, and cables always look good on a hat (to me, anyhow). Good job!

I like the color, too. The cables remind me of chromosomes!

Thanks! I tried getting a better picture, but it's one of those colors that doesn't want to photograph well. It's actually a pretty bright turquoise.

I'm about 1-2 inches from decreasing now.

Looks like it's gonna be another winner, Jan!

That a pretty color, Jan! Love that cable work! Can't wait to see it when it's finished!

Just gorgeous - and, as a matter of fact, I'm "feral" knitting a scarf which has a cable element ... such fun free forming.
