I took a short break from my Traveling Woman shawl to make a Rosebud hat by Jared Flood with some discount Cascade 220 in a bright red. I had previously started the hat with Malabrigo but quickly realized that I wasn't sure my wardrobe could handle another blue hat fighting for my affections. Three days later, I have a new (and my only) red hat. The pattern is quite easy, and a great project for those just getting into charts.
I have a Honey Cowl planned for a dear friend... and a trade of sorts for a Windschief cowl/hat combo for another former coworker. If I had to guess my needles will be clicking away all summer.
