Knitted Running Beanie Hat / Cap — for Me!

One of my resolutions for 2015:  spend more time knitting.  In several years (years!) of knitting, I have never knitted myself anything but washcloths.  Well, that ended Christmas Day 2014.  I was able to quickly knit up this gorgeous slate-putty-charcoal-colored squishy 100% baby alpaca yarn (Baby Alpaca Grande from Plymouth Yarn, color 2878) into a super soft and stretchy beanie for me to wear on runs, walks or around the house.  I’m cold.  I’ve absolutely been wearing this around the house!

I’m so excited about this beanie and having finally knitted something for myself that I am even posting pictures without makeup and after a run.  Yep.  Au naturel.  It’s SUCH a cute hat.  And super-soft.  I highly recommend this yarn and can’t wait to work up my other 5 skeins into a scarf, mittens, earband, headband, and perhaps even a hat to give away.
