The Catnip of Knitting

Okay, anyone who knows my knitting habits probably saw this one coming.  Colorwork?  The catnip of knitting.

And what better small-scale canvas to play with a new yarn than a hat?  I was a bit worried that the hat would be too thin in sport weight yarn, though certainly no less warm than say, a lace beret.  But the colorwork admirably serves the dual purpose of decoration and making the hat thicker.  And I'm completely charmed with the amount of decoration I can fit in this smaller gauge.    The only downside to the sport weight is that it does take longer.  For now I'm okay with that.
