From Knitting, etc.

The Cousteau hat is complete!  Excuse the poorly-framed photograph, but it's hard to get good shots when no one is around to help.  It looks a little awkward, mainly because it's a little too big for my head, but I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out.  The Cascade Heritage sock yarn doesn't halo, stretches nicely, and has a good sheen to it.  Hopefully I'll get a few additional photos (especially to detail the crown of the hat, which is my favorite part) when it is received by its rightful owner.

Now, I feel like there's so much more to make.  I admit that my progress on that tiny, stripey, baby sweater has been a little pathetic... but I think my enthusiasm is returning.

Plus, the upcoming holiday season has me in the mood to get knitting, especially after getting my hands on this year's Interweave Holiday Gifts issue!  Some major stashbusting is in the works.  And I finally have plans for some of that magnificent Turkish cashmere-bamboo yarn.  My friends and family will be on the receiving end of some swell goods if all goes according to plan.  Keep high hopes for me, folks.
