The Noro Hat I Promised

In this post I promised a hat from the leftover yarn.  Here it is.  

Pattern:  My own
Yarn:  Noro Kogarashi, colorway #10, 51% silk and 49% wool.
Needles:  US #8 and US #10
Comments:  For some unknown reason I decided that I'd soften the colors in the hat with a strand of Rowan's Kidsilk Haze.  It does make the hat warmer and softer but the mittens and the pom-pom look slightly different.  
When I was knitting with this yarn, I really didn't like it much.  But I really do like the way the projects turned out, and I will probably like them even better after they have been in the closet all summer.  Sometimes I feel like I get "too much" of a project and have to shelf it for awhile before I can truly appreciate it.

Love the hat to match the mittens. It is making me want to knit a little Noro set for myself for next winter.
