Yarn Along: Madalynn Izel

I'm linking up with Ginny for this week's Yarn Along.

I have a lot of squishy goodness to talk about so let's get started!

Knitting: Izel Hat
At the start of winter I bought a new puffy coat. Now that winter's almost over, I decided to knit a hat to go with it. My timing is impeccable. LOL. I've never had a slouchy hat before so I hope I like it.
Pattern: Izel by Veronika Jobe
Yarn: Cascade 220 in colorways 2442 Fog Hatt & 9406 Northern Landscape X

Also Knitting: A Shawl of My Own Design
A few weeks ago I took a class at the Madison Knit-In with Jen Lucas called "Design Your Own Sock Yarn Shawl." Well, this is my design! The first stitch pattern I charted and knit didn't look like much of anything so this is "take 2". Right now it's kind of hard to see if I'll like the design or not.
Pattern: (it's my own design)
Yarn: Cascade Yarns Heritage in colorway 5618 Snow

Speaking of the Madison Knit-In, aside from a pattern and some needles, this is what I brought home. I intend to make an Autumn Leaves cardigan for my cousin's baby girl with the Wonderland Yarns March Hare in colorway Cabbages & Kings. (Green is her favorite color.) I don't think I will need both skeins but I don't want to run out either. That other beautiful skein in the photo - I WON that! It's Miss Babs Yummy 2-ply in colorway Joan of Arc. I'm not sure what I'll make with it - any suggestions?

FO: Madalynn Cowl
I finally finished my cowl made with the yarn I bought at last year's Madison Knit-In! Many yarns feel too picky on my neck but this Quince & Co. Yarn is so nice. I was going to buy more this year but no one was selling it. Boo!
Pattern: Madalynn by Leah B. Thibault
Yarn: Quince & Co. Chickadee in colorways 108 Delft (blue) and 150 Sabine (Gray)

it's never too late to knit winter accessories, even if it's summer- winter is always going to be coming back around one day. ;) I love slouchy hats, I find them really comfy and easy to wear, I'm sure yours will be awesome!
