Growing on me

When I first started this hat, I didn't like how the yarn looked with my favorite hat pattern. However, after working a bit more, it started to grow on me. Now, I'm about 1.5 sections from completion, and most of the time I like it. I may have enough yarn left when I'm done for a second hat; if so, I plan to make a simple roll-brim hat so I can see how it looks when worked in a more conventional direction.

Now, this I've liked since I started it:

The plan is to eventually put together a 9-patch blanket like this one. I love the riot of color, and the fact that I've found a use for all those leftover bits of yarn, as well as some of the tapestry yarn I was gifted with some time back. Whenever I need some cheering up, I spread this out and pet it a little bit.

Tomorrow, I have to work. Since I have about five minutes' worth of work to do and an 8-hour day to fill, guess how I'll be spending my time? Got it in one--knitting! If I have to give up my Sunday, at least I'll have some FOs to show for it.

Hilfy, queen of the quizzical expression

Isn't amazing what emerges from mixing up little odd bits of yarn?
Yours is so beautiful and inviting - I want to snuggle up in it!
Great job Carol!
