Sometimes detours are inevitable . . . or out of my control. I had a bit of a knitting plan for this week, but I had to make an adjustment.
There's been another hat emergency in the family, and I didn't have the heart to say no. Or yes, but you'll have to wait. Instead I set aside my other projects and cast on a hat.
It's another Rikke Hat - this time a darker gray. This pattern is great when you need a hat in a hurry. I'll start decreasing in a few more rounds, and the hat will be off the needles later today. This detour wasn't too long and involved - more like pulling off the road for a scenic overlook. I'll be back to my regularly scheduled knitting soon enough.
