Stunning! I love it, it has such flair and yet so simple. Maybe I should make one with my left over malabrigo, hmmm...

Stunning, lovely - all words I was going to use. I guess I will add elegant to the list. And you do have a way with button choice!

Glorious! Off to make one right away (aren't they absolutely ideal for those of us with long necks?) Thank you so much for the inspiration.

I love the neck hug--it would work even here in TX, but I LOVE the Noro hat and your pic. You've mentioned worries more than once--I send you positive vibes to get through whatever it is. Nothing a little spiked lemonade and Scandinavian colorwork can't cure--;)

I just love the color! Looks great on also! I was just pondering knitting one up for myself! Thanks for the inspiration!

Right choice of button! Looks fantastic on you! Smart as ever! You are really a fast knitter! And mittens, and socks and....Koolhaas hat looked so great, but the number is sold out from interveave, so the pattern is unaccesible... Sigh. Nice anyhow!
I happend to mention on Rav. that NY has 24 hours shops... You said that sometime.. Cant you do a posting on NY yarnshops (and the 24 hour ones?) for us future visitors? Curious!
