Basic Cable Hat i.e. Aggressive Stashbusting

I bought another skein to swatch the Vogue pentagram sweater with. I could tell right away that it wasn't right for the sweater, but I did fall in love with the yarn and had to knit it up asap. It is called "Silkdream" by Lang yarns. It was reccommended to me by the owner of Yarn Paper Scissors, a new yarn shop in Burlingame.

It has been freezing lately in SF, and without the yardage for gloves or a scarf, I decided on the Basic Cable hat from Stitch n' Bitch Nation. Pretty quick and easy, except for the pom pom. This is the first time I have ever made one and it sure was a pain in the butt to pull the yarn through the circle about 200 times. I do love the hat, though.
