Yet another hat has come off the needles, this time it's Connie Chang Chinchio's Union Long Beanie! Ever since Weekend Hats came out, I've longed to make this hat. I snapped up two skeins of Lhasa Wilderness in Teal via Craftsy (I am still addicted to their deals!) and knit this up fairly quickly - the only thing that took longer than picking out the perfect button, however, was the amount of time it took me to post about it here on my blog! Thanks to Tyler, we have yet another silly backyard FO photo (I assure you, I am merely stopping to sniff the lilies):
Incidentally (and this is probably wholly inappropriate after such a silly photo), I'd just like to say thanks to everyone who's commented, e-mailed or texted me recently to say that my family is in their thoughts. I really appreciate it, more than I could say in any blog post. My family, friends, and even clients (who, quite honestly, I consider among my friends at this point) have been so supportive in the last week, and I cannot thank all of you enough.
