Hooray for Knitted Food and Pretty Hats

The February issue of Magknits came out this morning, and there are two designs in there that I absolutely love:

Sushi by Amy Polcyn

Odessa by the always fabulous Grumperina

There are precious few elegant knitted hats out there, and this is my favorite.

I love Odessa! It reminds me a little of Marnie's Nautilus hat http://marniemaclean.com/patterns/Nautilus/index.html which is styled on the same lines. I love how two hats can have such a similar basic concept but be so very different. Both elegant, both wonderful, very distinctly individual.

I still have trouble incorporating beads into my knitting but this looks to be a little easier than the laceweight/teensy beads I've been working with lately.

That hat pattern is one of the best I've ever seen. I definitely have it on my to-knit list (which is several volumes and an index).
