A little bulk...

 My friend, Angela and I decide to start another knit-a-long in our local group where you had a month to start/finish as many bulky projects you want.  This decision was made because I needed to work on something a little bulkier amid all the fingering or lace weight yarns I've been using in my current projects. 

 This light pea green color looks like it could be a cotton yarn but it's actually wool, angora, and nylon. One hank gives you about 73 yards to work with.  I love how the moss stitch looks with this yarn.

 The pattern I chose for the yarn is the Robin's Egg Blue hat which is a pretty popular hat pattern on Ravelry mostly because it's stylish and mostly because it's a free pattern.  The pattern was easy to follow and took me about a couple days to finish.

This hat barely took two hanks of this Reynolds Contessa yarn.  I love instant gratification projects!
