I made these from Merino Style, a yarn I love more every day. Really, it's so soft, and it just gets softer. My DD's mittens, which get tons of wear, are sooo fuzzy and wonderful now. But I digress! This was my first project with more than two colors. Stranding is still pretty awkward, but it felt much more natural by the 2nd hat.
I finished the first several weeks ago then decided to make a 2nd -- gifts for one of my DH's employees who has two little girls.
