Yesterday's hat plan met one obstacle after another. First, the yarn wasn't dry; still isn't, in fact. Secondly, I hit a few snags when I ordered this hat pattern. Seems the store owner's ISP doesn't like Canadian URLs, so the email with the download link was blocked. Late last night Julie emailed me the pattern directly out of frustration. And then, wouldn't you know it, the pattern asks for size 10 DPNs ... one of the few needle sizes I don't have.
Looks like the hat plan will have to wait a few days. Plan B? I guess I'll start another blanket for the Warm Hands Network. Several weeks ago I picked up 8 balls of Cascade 220 Superwash with this Estonian Lace Blanket pattern in mind. I'd love to show you that I'd made a start on it, but the first line of the pattern instructs me to provisionally cast on 161 stitches ... that might take a while.
