I've been working on (and off) Teresa Gregorio's wonderful bonnet, Calavera Catrina from her book Ghosts. Threadpanda generously sent me a skein of Madelinetosh Vintage in the Truly, Madly, Deeply colorway along with the book and I set to work immediately.
I was itching to write about the process, but I settled for doing a masterful job keeping my family in order during our busy months (which curiously enough show no signs of coming to an end). Oh, I did fascinating things like laundry, grocery shopping, and, most impressively, sending my beautiful husband a weekly schedule of who had to be where when so we could divide up the driving. Just . . . no writing.
This enjoyable pattern had a few twists which I needed to work out on the wing. See my project page on Ravelry for the details---recommended if you'll be knitting this design. The bonnet is too small for me, but my daughter was wearing the unadorned version even before I blocked it. There are some truly ingenious elements, and I was delighted to be the recipient of the book on Threadpanda's giveaway. Thanks, Amy!
