Finished Object:

It's done! It's done! Another Rustling Leaves by Alana Dakos is done!
It's not blocked though and I know there are some of you out there who would tell me it's not done till it's blocked.
It's on my head and I consider that done...I'll block it later when I have more time.
I was up till 11:00 last night finishing this and getting the next hat on the needles. The next had is for my niece Miss A. It'll be a perfect spring beret for her sweet little head. I know I know Minnesota is having a very warm past couple of days but I have faith in the weather system back there and believe that they will get another flurry of snow and some maybe a couple more cold days so a hat will be on it's way to the little one.
I only have 3 rows of it done so I won't show you that... Instead I'll show you this...

Pattern: Rustling Leaves by Alana Dakos found in the book Coastal Knits
Yarn: Dream in Color Starry in Black Parade
Needles: Size 2 (brim) Size 3 (main body) size 3 dpn's (to close it off)

I'm sure I don't need to tell you that I'm in love with this hat as much as I am with my purple one and that Alana Dakos is one amazing pattern designer/writer!

Right now, since it is unblocked, it fits more like a skull cap, however I do plan on blocking it according to pattern instructions so I will post those photos later...

In the meantime, the hat that I'm making for Miss A is 'Molly' by Alana and I'm using Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock in Happy Go Lucky colorway...
Pattern info is here
Yarn info is here 
The pattern goes from baby straight up to adult and lucky for me I know lots of girls in between that will all love a slouchy beret like this...including myself!
Happy Thursday!

I love it! I can't wait till this one is blocked. I started 'Molly' for my niece who is going to be 3 months on the 27th and I can't wait to see that done!!
