thinking cap

I finished a hat this afternoon: every once in a while, a great group of women in my department (a large percentage of the total female population, actually) get together for tea/drinks (depending on the time of day) and some knitting. Cheesy movies are also often involved. And sweets, of course. 

The pom-pom was an afterthought... the hat seems robust enough that a large topper fits, I think. Anyway, it's removable if I decide that I hate it (I'm always changing my mind).

The yarn is Sonomono "colored wool 100%" col. 43 from a beautiful store in Nara, Japan.

The cable pattern was inspired by a great little book... the title's rough translation is "Aran Patterns for Small Things".
