I started a Turn the Square hat last night. Casted on just before bed and I almost couldn't stop knitting. Now if your not a knitter/crocheter my next few statements will sound wacko! I couldn't stop because the fiber felt so good in my hands. I am using Cascade 220 & Noro for this hat. I didn't realize how long it has been since I've knit with worsted weight wool. My Ivy League vest is wool but finger weight wool is so thin you don't really get the "feel" of wool. The other projects over the weekend I used cotton and (gasp) acrylic blend yarns.
There was a feeling of peace, joy, relaxation? while working on the hat. I got it again today. This is my first time using both Cascade & Noro. There will be more Cascade in my future for sure. It's affordable and lovely.
And while I'm confessing all kinds of craziness today, I realized that this hat I'm knitting, which is supposed to be for my nephew, is actually for Joy #2. Does that ever happen to you all? The project changes it mind (or my mind) and becomes destined for another recipient? Initially, I thought I'd make my nephew the hat first and then Joy #2 with the left over yarns. Somehow, I the order is reversed. I'll have plenty for both of them so I'm not sure why I have a strong feeling that this first hat is for Joy #2.
In my normal life, I cooked my first pumpkin of the season last night and roasted its seeds. Now to decided what to make with my pumpkin puree...
