I have a hat design idea. It could be awesome. It's cables and colorwork and fingering weight yarn, and I don't know if I'm insane or it's genius. I think it might be the former.
This comes about because of a Ravelry thread about what's impressive in a hat, and that started the juices flowing. Mind, I've designed cables and colorwork before, but, well, I don't think this really counts as impressive. Nuts maybe, but not precisely impressive.
Now this, this could be impressive, I think. As an inspiration:
Yeah. So that's what I'm thinking. An 8 section hat with closed ring cables and I'm not sure what else. High nuts quotient is definitely a possibility.
In other things, I should deadhead the roses. They're loving the hot weather with lots of sun.
These are my favorite single white roses with a blush of pink on the buds. They were battling a bit of fungus earlier in the spring, but I think all the extra sun has helped, even if it makes me want to melt. The shrub has gone from weedy and sad to an explosion of glossy leaves and flowers the size of my palm.
