I love this yarn so much-it is probably the most aggressively bright yarn I own, and I'm pretty sure this hat is going to be my "walking at night so cars can see me" hat. It's really bright, and the lace and garter stitch pattern really adds to the character and charm. (Apparently everyone else in my house hates this color, but they can all have fun on Being Wrong Island while I hang out here in my awesome new hat.)
It worked up pretty quick-I certainly could have knit it up in a Saturday if I'd worked on it monogamously, but I had other pressing things on the needles (namely, Drift). It was definitely nice to have something small to pick up and put down over the new year, and this was definitely a welcome break from my sweater projects.

I hope you all had a great weekend! I'd hoped to get a lot of reading done, but I ended up just marathoning Murder, She Wrote and Mythbusters trying to get Drift finished. C'est la vie. I'm not hitting a January knitting slump like I did last year, which is great, but I keep getting distracted by all the fun projects I have planned!
