habitat

Well, howdy ho! We've been having so much fun here, Living and Learning about how hard drives go click click when they die and the blue screen of death really does mean you should probably just rip up the week's calendar and pull all your hair out now; and how D3ll D@tasafe is an absolutely unreliable back-up service; and how just because the VW dealer's computer sez your car needs that nearly $1,000 repair, it doesn't actually mean that will fix the problem; and assorted other lovely lessons from the school of hard knocks. But hey, rather than locking myself in a rubber room for the past week, I managed to instead wrap string around sticks for long enough to warm my son's noggin this winter with a Habitat hat.

The pattern is awesome. I modified it a wee bit to make the cables more intertwined, rather than layered, but otherwise followed it exactly. I finally mastered cable charts on this project. This week especially, I'll celebrate the small victories, y'know?

Jesse's eyes lit up and he responded with "Wow!" when he saw this hat pattern. When I offered to knit it for him, he headed straight for the yarn stash and chose Alice Starmore's Scottish heather something or other, snagged in a yarn swap. He doesn't ask for much, so I was happy to oblige and he was thrilled with the results.
