Rhomboid Hat; or, why did it take me so long to post about this? (Xmas Hat 5/8)

Okay, let me start by saying I actually made this hat over Halloween. That's right, over Halloween. So why did it take me so long to write about it? I blame not having a tripod and camera, and also never really liking how my hair looks except for when I go to the salon, but really, there's not a good reason.

So the pattern is Rhomboid Hat by Megan Elyse Williams. I used Paton's Metallic Wool, which I found on clearance at JoAnn's, and first off, I did not like knitting with it one bit, and second, I wish it showed the rhomboid pattern more.

I picked up 2 balls of the yarn since it was such a good deal (I think they were down to like $1.50 each) but I have no idea if/when I'm going to use the other ball since I disliked knitting with it that much.

Overall, I might go back to the hat pattern, but I'd definitely use a different yarn... I'd probably fall back on my usual Cascade favorites!
