Finished: Jane, Rikke & Simple Pleasures Hats

I've had an incredibly fruitful knitting week.  I am beginning to feel unstoppable and like I may have beaten my summer curse.  Within the week I finished a Jane hat in Madelinetosh Vintage (French Gray colorway), a Rikke Hat in Berroco Ultra Alpaca (Berry Mix) and a Simple Pleasures Hat in Malabrigo Worsted (Sunset).   All of these hats are incredibly easy, so I shouldn't toot my horn too much, but I am feeling good about my ability to keep my knitting up during this suck ass weather. 

Simple Pleasures

I am feeling so ballsy, in fact, that I have just cast on a Haruni with Cascade 220 in an amazing Olive color.... I wasn't joking in my last post.  I've finally made it.  More on Haruni soon.  And hopefully by the time I am finished I still have hair (and a sense of humor).

In other amazing news, a Ravelry friend from the RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) group, gifted me the pattern for Stucco.  I am delighted, as I have been fawning over the pattern for some time.  I was quite surprised to look it over and to see how intricate some of the stitches were.  I feel it will be a bit of a challenge--one that I am looking forward to soon.  So many thanks to the amazing lady who made my day.
