Falling in Love with More Hat Patterns

Wow, I just had the longest weekend ever. Visitation Week for the Clinical Psych program is over and my friend who stayed with me for his interview has gone home. After living by myself for several months, it was weird sharing my apartment with someone. The main thought that went through my head was, "What do you mean I have to let T sleep now? I want to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer!" Of course, I let T get sleep (I should note, he was sleeping in my living room, which prevented the TV watching) before his interviews and it was nice to catch up on Brown gossip, but I would be lying if I said that I was sad to have my apartment to myself again.

Not too much knitting got done with the interviews. I spent the weekend hanging out with applicants and shuttling people back and forth between houses and the department. I did get my Vogue Knitting magazine though (it got lost in the mail and this was my replacement). The patterns were nice enough, but I fell in love with a hat in a pattern book that was advertised on page 42. It is in the "Artwork Knitting in Africa" for elle yarn. It is a lot like a hat in loop-d-loop, so I am going to see if I can modify the loop-d-loop pattern (since I own that book). There is a big floppy flower on the hat in the VK pattern, but I don't think I would look good with it, so the transformed loop-d-loop pattern seems like the best bet for now.
