While I am experiencing rather severe startitis these days, and my WIPs are taking over the living room, I do occasionally manage to get things finished, too! Having a quick project full of interesting yet easy-to-intuit details and worked in a truly luscious yarn certainly helps.
I worked all the cabling without a cable needle, which truly made this a fast project (and it would have been even faster if I’d have had pointier needle). Definitely check out Eunny Jang’s instructions for this technique from her Bayerische Socks, or search out one of the many tutorials and/or videos for how do do this — you won’t regret it!
One present down, only… well, let’s not think about how many more to go yet, shall we? It’s not even December yet: I think I’m doing pretty well!

Cabling without a cable needle rules all. Yay new purple hat!
Very nice! I’m in the process of dyeing up yarn now to knit a couple, I’ll have to try the needless cabling.
Love the hat (especially the color)!
Damn, I need to make that hat. It looks great. And thank you again for my chicken cozy, he shall sit happily in the kitchen keep reign over everything. As he is a magical mystical chicken tea cozy, or at least that is what I will tell everyone when they ask why I have a chicken tea cozy :) Yay for new hats.
