Random Chaos Hat!

After only 3 froggings (rip outs)! argh.

The yarn finally decided to become a ribbed personality hat.
The coils demanded accentuation so I made the coiled stitches really (really) loose
and then pulled them to the front.

First few attempts were to make it a garter stitch edge, then just a stockinette stitch, similar to the Hippie Skull Hugger Hat, but the coils looked deflated and frustrated, so I kept trying.

I think the ribs help the colors changes to pop a bit more and the coils just glow, well, they glow because they are acid green, but you know what I mean.

I love it.

It is ob-nox-ious. This yarn was spun purely for the color combo.

No pics of the yarn before knitting (oops).
Well there is sort of a picture Here.
The yarn was originally called "Monster Mash" and was in a trunk show that was sent to some yarn shops around Halloween. BUT the colors are great for any time of the year and just make me so very happy.

"Random Chaos" is going with me to the Twilight Sale. (link) on Dec. 5th.

If it comes home with me I will put it in the Handmade Magic Gallery to sell.
