"Afghani Cap" pattern by Teva Durham, found in Vogue Knitting On The Go: Caps & Hats. I used Handmaiden Fine Yarn's "Ottawa," leftovers from the same hank that I used for my Moebius cowl, and there's still quite a bit left. Intended for my mom, this hat didn't turn out exactly as I'd hoped (though I haven't blocked it yet, and that could change things), but it works. It turned out just fine, in fact, and looks really cute on Maddy -- so I win!
I can't get enough of these colors, so I'm just fine with trying again.
I finished a scarf last night, about a quarter-way through the Oscars. I sat back, gave appendages a rest, and watched the rest of the show sans knitting. I think Hugh Jackman did a terrific job, very entertaining. His opening number was clever and funny. I laughed hardest at Ben Stiller as Joaquin Phoenix on David Letterman, complete with gum on the podium. Hil.ar.i.ous. I kind of lost my way during a few of the montages and sequences, and wasn't blown away by the big musical number. Absolutely LOVED the format for the four Best Actor/Actress awards.
Anyway, I had a good weekend and feel more rested and "with it" this week -- I was off from the starting gun last week. Details on that new scarf tomorrow.
