A trio of Snapdragon Tams! This is one of my favourite hat patterns and it’s definitely a go-to when I have an extra skein of light worsted weight yarn lying around. (I’ve actually made it four times, but I lost my green version somewhere in Banff a couple of Christmases ago.)

Spontaneous lunch date with Jillian! We tried the new Greek place around the corner. It was pretty, but definitely overpriced for gyros.

FO: TINY Tea Leaves Cardi (project page, pattern page). A super adorable sweater made for a super adorable girl! I love the ruffled yoke, especially in this beautiful butter-yellow yarn. The buttons were leftovers from another project, but I think they go perfect with the sweater.

FO: Lyrica Euterpe (project, pattern). An old FO that got new pictures.

"Knitting is a boon for those of us who are easily bored. I take my knitting everywhere to take the edge off of moments that would otherwise drive me stark raving mad."

Upside: I made it to the heel of the second sock.

Downside: Hey, those don’t look like the same heel… (I didn’t take notes on the first sock and assumed I’d done a standard slip-stitch heel. I did not do a slip-stitch heel, I switched it up and did an Eye of the Partridge because I thought it would go well with the variegation of the yarn.)

Upside: Frogging can be therapeutic.
