A Good Weekend, and Cabot

Wow, okay, first off, that you so much to everyone for the incredible and positive response to my post from Wednesday. That was a difficult post to write, in several ways, and I am so proud and grateful to be a part of this diverse and supportive community.

I hope you all have a good weekend planned. My sister is graduating tomorrow, so I get to spend the weekend celebrating with her as well as visiting with all our friends and family that are coming out to celebrate as well. On the knitting front, the socks are still doing well, and I've gotten some quality time in with my orange tee as well. I (finally) have the patterns for the yellow and green shawls written up, so once they're all edited I'll be able to share those with you as well.

Finally, since this is a knitting blog and I like to show off my FOs, I got my Cabot hat done in time for summer! This is the last time it'll be on my head for a long while. I love it so much, though, and I'm so excited for winter (who am I kidding, I'm always excited for winter).

I love this little hat, and I'm convinced it's pretty much perfect. It's drapey and slouchy and there's plenty of room, even with the brim folded up. I love the triangles, and I'm even more in love with this yarn. All in all, I don't think I could be more pleased with it.

  1. congratulations to your sister! I love how slouchy the hat is and I like the color. I've thought about knitting a cabot too! I'm just caught up with knitting shawls at the moment :)

  3. Yes, that is the perfect, slouchy hat! And I understand what you mean, because it is hard writing personal posts. But we do have an incredibly encouraging community, don't we? I love it! Thank you for all your encouragement that you give, too :) Have a lovely week!
