My Cool Ass Koolhaas Hat

I heart this hat! The pattern is awesome (and taught me how to cable without a cable needle), and the yarn is lovely. I used Colinette Iona, which is 70% wool, 15% mohair, and 15% silk. It's very squishy, and the color is stunning. I love uber rich colors. My only complaint was that the yarn's dye was not properly set, so I had blue hands every time I finished knitting for the night. I soaked the hat in vinegar and water, so hopefully it won't bleed on my forehead!

It matches my eyes almost perfectly, as you can see in this kinda creepy pic.
