Instant gratification

I really missed that feeling on casting on, knitting away for a few hours, and then holding up a finished object, crying "Ta da!"

So I made this:

Ta da!
Pattern: Loop d'Loop by Chris Bylsma Designs
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden
Needle: Size 9 KnitPicks Options circ.
Mods: added extra bits of Kureyon at the end, since I ran out of the Silk Garden before the hat reached an adult-head-sized width. If I had cast on fewer (like the 40 sts reccomended for the Adult Small size, rather than the longer 46 for the Medium-Large), I feel certain this would have been a one-skein project.

And now back to my slow progress on the Silky Wool cardigan that I started the week before my birthday and still somehow is not done... I'm setting a goal for myself that it will at least be done before I leave for camp. In 3 weeks. I can do this!

This is totally unrelated to knitting. This website lets you plot running routes (by distance) anywhere in the US. I think it's SUPER helpful: http://www.usatf.org/routes/

I'm on Flickr a lot.
