Baby, its Cold Outside

It's 28 degrees outside, and I'm torn between knitting my sweater and making a hat.  

I wound up the yarn, and casted on for the hat anyway. 

The name of the hat is Sand Bank  by Justyna Lorkowska. It's a slouchy cabled hat, and I intend to add a huge Pom-Pom to it.  

I used a stretchy German Twisted Cast-On, but I'm wondering if I should go up another needle size. The hair on my head is quite curly and fluffy, and I need to make sure the hat will be able to fit around it properly.  Hmmmmmmmmm

Also, to get the cable needle needed for the hat, I had to remove one of the needles from my sweater. The good thing is, I was finally able to fix the twisted back.  Now it hangs just right.

Gah you stole from your sweater for the hat! Hopefully you'll finish that hat in no time. Love the yarn color.
