The second thing I'm thankful for is my son. While it kills me that he's all grown up and talking about moving out, I'm oh so thankful for the fun, yet responsible young man he's turned into. And since he's such a responsible young man, he received his first credit card in the mail yesterday.
He's feeling pretty smug about it. Or at least he was until I suggested he use it to buy me some yarn.
Meanwhile, I knit another hat.
I absolutely love the finished results of this one. The yarn is Patons Classic Wool in the Light Grey Marl colorway. Every single time I go to the yarn store, this wool taunts me. I love the colorway in the skein but I'm rarely happy with the way tweedy yarns look knit up. Each time I visit the yarn shop, I pet a skein of the Light Grey Marl, tell it how pretty it is, then move on because I know I'll be unhappy once I start knitting with it. But on the last trip, the yarn fumes got to me and I tossed a skein into my basket. And I'm so glad I did.
