A Necessary Distraction

Unsurprisingly, I started another hat this weekend. Couldn't bear the thought of diving back into lace (although I did swatch on a much better pair of needles).

Any guesses? It's another Shedir! The yarn is an unnamed wool-cashmere blend that I picked up on a lark from a yarn store sale bin a few years ago. It's scrumptious. Unbelievably soft, springy, and sky-colored.

In terms of what this reveals about me psychologically: I think that I always want to have a hat going on circular needles. When the going gets tough with other projects, it's wonderful to have a fallback project to lift ones spirits.
