One of the last real splurges I made before Ron lost his job was get a skein of Zitron Opus 1 from my LYS.
They had this perfect colorway and I just had to have it to maky myself a hat. Needless to say, the skein didn’t sit in my stash for long. :o)
I love this hat, and I still wear it at least one day a week. Every color in it is the perfect color for me. I loved the colorway so much, I got it in their new sock yarn line too. :o) I’m thinking it needs to be a Sockhead hat, but I’ve not decided for sure yet.
And, I love the fact that, avter over a year of serious wear, this hat still looks really good. There’s a little fading, and it’s not as pristine as in the picture, but Istill get a compliment on it almost everytime I wear it. I must remember to make another one day. :o)
