Happy Leap Day!!

I finished the leap-day surprise project, and with time to spare!
It is the Karkauspäivän pipo - Leap Day hat. I love it!  Don't worry, the pattern is in Finnish, you haven't forgotten how to read English.
I was afraid that something went wrong with the design because the ribbed band was so big.  All the cabling pulled the knitting in and made it so nice and thick and smushy.

I can't seem to get the colors right in the picture. It is a more pinky-purple, or a dark magenta.

I did learn that Finnish is a cool language.  As I was playing around with the translator I found that one work meant one thing, but together with a second word, it meant something else.

Time to go play with some color change yarn!
