Hat Rainbow

The mystery projects I've been working for a few months were Foliage hats from Knitty. I knit four to give away, and kept one for myself. I liked both the chunky and worsted weight versions. This was the first time I've worked with Malabrigo yarn, and I am smitten. I can't believe how soft it is, and the colors are candy for my eyes. The stitch definition of the beautiful lace pattern is much more visible when the hat is being worn.
