All five vowels in one seven-letter word!

The Vital Statistics
Molly by Erin Ruth, available for free.
Only one size available. Be aware that this hat is deep, that is, very long from ribbing to crown, almost too long perhaps. It would take a little thinking to cut some length out in terms of co-ordinating the placement of the cables with the decreases and that's why I didn't do it.
Madeline Tosh Merino in colourway 'sequoia' bought from westknits' destash. I was curious to try this yarn out and it is very lovely, so soft.
4mm and 4.5mm.
Start to finish: 3 to 13 March 2011.
Stash/recycle content:
Yes, knit from stash.
Comments: I didn't make any modifications although I did have to fudge the number of rows in order to get the cable pattern and the knit/purl pattern to align. Just by one row though. I'm hesitant to block it out into a tam shape as this was unsuccessful with Ripley and I don't want a repeat of that. There are no mistakes, just design choices and I'm choosing to wear this as a long beanie. Perhaps some more slouch will appear with wearing ....
Very happy. I wore it for the first time and received a compliment.
