A secret, an unraveling, and a hiatus

There’s a fair amount of similarity between last week’s WIP Wednesday/Yarn Along post and today’s post.

I took a break from the Pineapple Doily Shawl since I didn’t take it on vacation with me and then promptly forgot to bring it to class with me on Saturday to work on along with my students.

It still looks like this.

My cabled hat has seemingly travelled backwards in time, going from this last Wednesday afternoon…

(That’s me enjoying the sunshine on my vacation.)

… to this yesterday.

If you are/were a fan of the show Seinfeld,  you may remember this scene from “The Muffin Tops” episode.

That pretty well sums up what happened to my hat.  I noticed an irregularity a few rows down and started ripping back.  And then, one thing led to another, and I was casting on again.  I’m not too stressed about it, though, because this is part of my Holiday Stashdown Challenge to make my winter holiday gifts slowly throughout the year rather than frantically in December.

And, finally, I’ve started a new secret project.

A tiny detail from my secret project.

This is a sample for a freebie pattern I’m working on for Galler Yarns in Inca Eco.  I’m having a lot of fun with this one, so I’m looking forward to unveiling it soon.

On the reading side of things, I finished Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain last night.  I really enjoyed it and want to thank Evelyn from Project: Stash and Stacey from FreshStitches for introducing me to the book.  I’m taking a short pause as I contemplate what I’d like to read next.
