Back in March I asked one of my co-workers if she wanted a hat. She wanted beige, so I decided to use the cashmere that Max brought back from China. It's super thin though, so I needed to knit with five strands at a time. After a few stops and starts (and one very tangled mess) trying a new pattern, I switched patterns and knit Ashminah's hat again.
I love the softness of the yarn and the homespun quality of how it looks. It will probably be too warm to wear until the fall or winter but I think she's going to like it.
