Welcome back to WIP Wednesday, and this time, I've got an almost-done project!  The Penny Hat is off the needles, but still needs to be blocked and have the labels sewn in before it goes off to its home!

A lace hat knit in dark green fingering-weight yarn.

The yarn is *Knit Picks Hawthorne Kettle-Dyed in the colourway "Serpent", which I also am very much in love with! It's a touch rougher on the hands then some of the other Knit Picks sock yarns, but I'm really enjoying it!  Right now, the hat is scrunched up and the kettle-dyed yarn is a bit busy, but I'm hoping it will even all out with blocking.   I plan to block it over a baking bowl and see what that does to the lace.  I also  have to sew in my labels (since I'm selling this hat a as commission, the law says I have to have a label with fiber content and mailing address). 

As for needles, the needles I used are an old set of 2.75 circular mm needles, and then some 2.25 mm double-pointed needles for the ribbing. 

So yeay for a project I can share for WIP Wednesday!  And if you want to show off your  WIP Wednesday projects, feel free to post them in the comments, as I love ooh-ing and aah-ing over peoples amazing projects! (Please, no Ravelry project links though, as Ravelry is, unfortunately, still a seizure risk. But IG posts, Facebook posts, blog posts, or anything else is more then welcome, I'd love to see what you're working on!)
