I'm still inching along on Vivian, but somehow I doubt anyone wants to see a picture of the almost-finished second sleeve that looks pretty much just like the first one or read my whining about endless seed stitch.
Instead, I have a new half-knit hat for today.
I planned this hat for Mike back when I thought I would have plenty of yarn for Low-Tide Ripples. I chucked the idea when I saw there wouldn't be much leftover, but once I had to order an extra skein, well, why not two? So Composition Book Gray arrived on my door with a bright yellow companion--Butter. The color combo idea came from Mike admiring the Chadwick sample (I covet this too and am still a bit obsessed with duplicating it). MadTosh Butter is really bright though. Even brighter than expected. Almost highlighter yellow bright. Mike seemed okay with it though so once I finished Low-Tide, I threw more money at Stephen West and started Skid.
I might be developing a Stephen West problem. This is the third hat pattern of his I've knit, and while I was about to say I've been able to withstand the lure of his shawls, I just remembered Clockwork and Flamboyan were his too. Plus the plans for Chadwick that have been in the works for awhile. And when I went to his Rav patterns page to grab the Skid link, I discovered Gullfoss. A vest? A poncho? A scarf? All in one? I'm intrigued. Throws Skid aside to start pondering stash....
