Last night I cast off the big shawl commission, and immediately kept my promise to myself to knit something quick and fun FOR MYSELF. I made this hat. It's the free chevron hat pattern from Ravelry- here are my notes.
I'm still reading Irish Fairy Tales by James Stephens (free epub). That's all, for me, beautiful but easy simple bites of fantasy. I am knitting like crazy and painting instead, feeling a real drive to create art. I haven't felt the need to paint, or not this strongly, since my pregnancy with Talia. Welcome back, artist self, emerging from the baby cocoon!
