snow day unraveling

Cherry Blossom Hat

Despite having had a snow day today, I can’t really tell you how I spent it. I mean some of it I can account for. But the rest was just frittered away, not knitting, not reading, not doing much of anything.

Which accounts for this photo of a book you’ve already seen and of a new knitting project that’s not further along. I’m into the third part of A Gentleman in Moscow and I suspect the action will pick up soon. I can see the author laying the pieces in place for what is to come. I’m still listening to We Were Eight Years in Power and the print copy is also in my hands for referring back to. I’ve also started listening to the first Amelia Peabody novel, Crocodile on the Sandbank.

The yarn is the start to Yoshino Cherry Blossom Hat. I opted for cherry pink for the brim instead of brown the way the pattern calls for. And I might opt for regular rib instead of twisted rib, because I think that’s stretchier and the pattern repeat is 36 stitches long, making it hard to just add a couple to the cast-on the way I’d meant to.
