So the hat needed some cuffs to go with it (this pretty much always feels like the go to move in my world…I love having matching head and hand things more than I can possibly explain).  But I knew I was rather short on yarn.  So I carefully carefully divided the yarn in half (if you don’t have a scale, do yourself a favor and get one, I have and love this one).  Then I cast on and distracted myself as I slogged through a tube of ribbing.

Then came the ever so much more entertaining swoopy bits.

And the gleeful realization that yes, indeed, I was totally going to win the game of yarn chicken…just barely.

Next up, green bits!
