Went to A Good Yarn today and now am in possession of a new hat pattern and new yarn, courtesy of Rowan. I'll be making the Safi Hat from the Cotton Rope collection - out of great soft pink. Am thinking it will be a good call. The yarn is soft and thick, so it'll be warm enough and not at all itchy - and the pattern has holes throughout for some breathing in the hot LA sun - but not too much breathing, since we do want to hide the lack of hair below...

I'm thinking with a little commitment, I can get the puppy done in a couple of days in time for the Closing Ceremonies. We'll see!

Gotta say, it's fun to walk into a yarn store where you don't only know the staff, but the customers too! I didn't expect to be seeing fellow Knitsmiths Claire and Lisa B in addition to Johanna and Dani - what fun! I felt a little like Norm from Cheers...

Even the girls had a good time, thanks to a little dollhouse in the corner and Barbie Knits - in addition to the ever fabulous Dani who put up with some questionable restocking "help" and Johanna who is always way sweet to the kids, Lisa got down on her knees to assist Zoe with a new magnet toy - now THAT'S a fellow Mom!

Anyways, off to the gym for a quick shot of energy and then back for dinner and the final push on this project...
