This photo perfectly depicts how I spent the majority of my snow days. From left to right: book, wool lap blanket, flannel pjs, and in the far right of the photo, Gracie. You may have to "embiggen" the photo to see her, to borrow a term from Yarn Harlot.
I've gotten all the body stitches on the needles and it's ready to go, but I put it aside to begin a hat or two.
I've had the pattern since it came out, but for some reason I hadn't cast on, and when I went through the stash, it turned out I didn't have pink yarn, other than the yarn I have for my Mary Rebecca sweater. So I ventured out to my LYS today and bought these two beauties. The one in the right is Cascade 220, and the one on the left is a new to me yarn, Susquehanna Knitting Company, from Maryland. I know a colleague who is going to the March, so the Cascade hat will be my gift to her, and the other one will be for me, but here's my dilemma. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to go. I have always considered my myself to be a "hippie, born ten years too late", but it seems I may less of a risk taker than I want to believe. What are your thoughts?
