The hat was a great first choice. The cables look lovely (I love, love cable work!), and I really enjoyed sewing the hat up from a flat piece.
Here's me, beaming with pride in my new hat.
Sarah made tons of food and we looked at patterns, knit, and watched Seinfeld and Simpsons DVDs. Nice relaxing weekend.
I'm trying to figure out what to make next.

So, here's what I'm taking with me for the weekend, in hopes of making some real progress:
I started this earlier in the week, and hope to give it to my mom with the scarf I'm making. They don't quite match, but she loves all things purple, so I think she'll look past that fact.I have one thumb left on my first fetching pair, and Sarah's going to help me conquer it. I'm hoping to make several pair of these for xmas gifts, so I've got to get it under my thumb. Har.
I'm taking my soft lux in green, to make Natty, by Wendy Bernard.
I'm also taking a couple balls of Berroco touche, which I'm very eager to try. I'm hoping to make the Zephyr Style tree jacket. It looks so lush and soft, so I hope it's a good choice for the project.
Finally, I'm bring my first ball of comfort, in hopes of starting the tahki sweater I've got my eye on found here on ravelry
Okay, so perhaps, I'm being a little ambitious. :\ We'll see.
