I can see a rainbow

It's been raining here in the Pacific NW for 4 days straight now.  I'm not complaining, but I am reminded this is the reason it stays forever green here in our neck of the woods.  All this rain and the cold (I forgot to mention the cold, didn't I?) makes me homey.  Half of my waking hours are spent cozied up in a warm corner.  This makes for perfect knitting weather!!  Last night I finished filambulle's Noro Kureyon hat and I love LOVE it. It's simple and beautiful.  And what I love most about it is that I can have a rainbow wherever I go.  How wonderful is that??!

I am now a big time fan of Noro Kureyon.  It's hard for me to shell out more than $5 for one skein, but Noro is so worth it.  I plan on knitting up a few more of these hats. I used Noro Kureyon color 170.  Here is what it looked like as a skein:

I knit it up using size 7 circs and size 6 DPNs.  I also began the decrease at 5", but next hat for me I may go a wee bit longer.  I have a small noggin'. Wearin' a rainbow is a fun time guaranteed.
