I'm in Love

Besotted is off the needles and tomorrow I will weave in the ends and block. The mailman brought my Kyarns order and before I knew what I was doing I had rolled my new Malabrigo yarn into a ball, cast on to my new Denise needles and was making a hat (2x2 rib). I'm having a little difficulty with the circular needles...yarn isn't moving along them as nicely as I would like. Although the pattern called for 16" circulars, I think I should have used a shorter cord. I can't stop admiring the colors (Stonechat) and the softness of the yarn. I must have a sweater from this yarn.
Bathroom remodel is progressing nicely. By yesterday evening everything had been removed from the room(vanity, toilet, tub, tile floor, tile walls, medicine cabinet). Today my new tub was installed and the dry wall replaced and repaired.

I always feel like a 16" is too short for the first inch or so of a hat, and then something magic happens and it's just fine. I think this effect happens especially with ribbing, since it bunches up on the needle.
