Belated Yarn Along: something for me

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!
