Somehow, this turns into a lacy purple hat with a chartreuse lining. It will have two Latvian braids, each running in the opposite direction. I am following instructions that are making my brain hurt.
I rarely knit without multi-tasking. The easy projects become difficult, and the harder projects become impossible. I am reevaluating this strategy.
The weekend will be crazy busy. Getting ready for turkey, for the first winter storm next week, and learning new stuff are all on the slate. I will report back.
