I finished the Jayne Cobb hat two days ago, and my brother’s barely taken it off since! Guess that means he likes it. The rust red is far too dark, but it’s the closest I could find in local shops (and it looked a fair deal lighter under the florescent lights in the yarn shop). I’m satisfied with it, and it was a quick knit.
Also got the Isabeau handbag 100% complete (before, the knitting was finished, but I hadn’t sewn in the lining). It looks really cute, but since it’s a gift, I don’t want to ruin the surprise by putting up a photo.
Headed back to grad school tonight. It’ll be good to get back in classes, but I can’t say I’m looking forward to being in Houston again.
