Orchids & Fairy Lights Hat

...aka my lovely new autumn hat.

The pattern is Orchids & Fairy Lights by Tiny Owl Knits, and the wool is Malabrigo Worsted. Super soft and lovely to work with. On a recent trip to London (the night before which I was frantically finishing the hat in order to wear it that week) I visited the beautiful shop Loop in Islington, where I picked up a couple more skeins of this wool in other beautiful colours. I'm reluctantly going to knit them up into Christmas gifts...

My head is currently whirling with projects I want to cast on, becoming more and more confused with the different wools, the different patterns and whether they will match up. Tonight I plan to lay it all out and make a plan. Using Ravelry is a good way to keep it organised, so i guess i'd better line them up in the project queue rather than continuously adding new patterns to the library.

Is anyone else planning on knitting some gifts for Christmas?
