Someone, I don't even remember who, showed me the Dwarven Battle Bonnet last year. I showed it to Nous. He said--omg! that's so cool! I want one. Of course, for him, it would be a viking battle bonnet.
And because I was at loose mental ends (shut up. That is so different than usual!) I decided I would learn to knit just to make him one. Bought the pattern. Bought the yarn. Got busy learning the skills.
Several scarves, hats, two meditation shawls, and one pair of yoga socks later: triumph.
I am ridiculously pleased with myself.
Nous is just ridiculously pleased.
