i’ll get around to it. but first: for those celebrating, happy thanksgiving! for the rest of you, happy day!

i couldn’t find the recipe for the veggie medley that was requested of me, so i ended up making stir fry:

thanksgiving stir fry
super tasty. green beans, bell pepper, onion, carrot, portabella, and garlic. nom nom nom! much food was eaten, family enjoyed, and i ate well but managed not to stuff myself silly. success!

in the UP, i made an impulse purchase of two skeins of berroco jasper. almost immediately, i was grasped by the idea of a colorwork hat involving squares within squares that bowed into arrows at the top.

jake has been desiring a new hat for a couple of months. i think since july, when i made one of his good friends a hat for his birthday, and jake got to pick the pattern and colors (my cairn) jake started jonesing.

deets:
yarn: berroco jasper, two skeins.
color a: verde lavras (primarily greens and purple)
color b: copper silk (quiet blue-greys and orange)
needles: my faves, addi turbos size 4
pattern: my own, tried and true colorwork hat pattern. any dk, worsted or aran weight yarn can be knit on size 4’s into a dense and roomy hat at 120 sts. as for my broham’s hat i mixed all three weights into the hat without any change in gauge, and not too much noticeable difference.

(side story time: my brother has crap luck with my knits. he lost this hat that i made him within a couple of months. i would have been miffed but he seemed pretty sad about it, so i let it go. also, his jayne cobb hat almost got lost at a concert, but his girlfriend saw it sticking out of some dudes back pocket and nicked it back. there are a plethora of jayne cobb hats floating around, but how many have a little red patch job in the orange section? i texted him the other day when i was at a yarn store to see if he had any idea what colors he wants this years hat to be. he texted back immediately that he would like a black, grey and white hat, in exactly the same pattern as last years. i was incredibly amused, as my brother is one of the most laid back people i have ever met, and it sounded like he was just waiting for me to ask. end side note.)

i’m really proud of my crown decreasing, fy to the i. when i started this hat i wasn’t sure about the colorways together, but as i went on i became a little obsessed with it. now i really really like. it seems like i choose very similar colors for jake on a regular basis, as it goes with his scarf and mitts pretty well, considering that wasn’t a consideration!
