The hat is coming along... much better now that I understand what's going on. The colours could be better but I guess that's what I get for substituting something different. Still, it's a great yarn to work with and the recipient's favorite colour is purple (and that's what matters).
In other news... watched the Pat's game last night. Loved it! We'll be watching next Sunday as well. And I'm actually sad that I'll probably be missing the game on the 23rd because I'll be up in Canada with my family. It's funny, I never thought I would ever be into football. Guess I've been living down here too long! :)
