I am having so much fun knitting this little hat that I haven't even THOUGHT about picking up a different knitting project! I'm pretty much addicted. Although, I would have way more done if it were possible to knit complicated cables with changing stitch counts while reading/watching TV . . . last night I ripped out more than I got accomplished due to trying to work on this while reading blogs. It's way too complicated to lend itself to doing it while paying attention to anything else! Don't say I didn't warn you. (also, please don't say that I'm the only person that would have thought it was reasonable to even try this. I know it.)
Oh and if the last picture left you wondering what the tam really looks like, this one is a very good representation of the color and the subtle shading. Took this shot with my DSLR and the umbrella light so it's probably as close to reality as I can manage!
