So I kind of dropped the ball on the "I Want To Make This" feature of the blog. I was hoping to do it weekly; maybe monthly makes more sense!
Sneaking in for the month of January, this month's IWTMT is The Amanda Hat (warning: PDF link), designed by Gina House of Sleepy Eyes Knits. One skein of Malabrigo Worsted (used very carefully) can get you two hats, and the pattern is FREE. Yes, free. I think it'll be great with that Malabrigo I picked up a few weeks ago!
Edited to add: I assume the pattern specifies you can get 2 hats out of 216 yards of Malabrigo Worsted, but Ravelry states that new skeins will only be 210 yards. Proceed with caution.
