The latte is decaf -- even Caffeine Girl has her limits -- and the hat is Gladys, a free pattern from Quince and Co. I'm knitting it in the called-for yarn, Quince's Chickadee. At the moment, I am liking the yarn more than the pattern. The yarn has a rustic look, but without the roughness that often comes with that type of yarn. Chickadee is really quite soft.
The lace pattern doesn't show up at all, at least not so far. Obviously I'm hoping that blocking with change that.

I hit page 100 last night and I'm still not sure how I feel about it. The writing is incredible, but the amount of detail is overwhelming. I'm thinking I'll like it more when the author gets a little older. At the point where I'm reading, he's a teen-ager and there's a lot of teen-boy angst. Despite my ambiguous feelings, I'm not ready to give it up?
I'll be checking with Keep Calm and Craft On.
