Feb 4 -- Piewhacket (started the bindoff!); bamboo triangle
Feb 5 -- Bound off Piewhacket & blocked -- hrm. may not have been the best pairing. I may frog this and do something else -- I think this yarn needs stockinette to appear at its best. Will photo and ponder more. Taiyo Greenjeans.

Feb 24 -- started a special request slouchy hat for DB - DK weight, elastic brim, stash yarn. (if this one works out I may need to find some cotton-y yarn for a summer slouch)
Feb 25 -- more slouchy hat, mostly picking up after I dropped a stitch down five rows of mesh stitch, at which point it became easier to rip back to the stockinette section and start the mesh over
Feb 26 -- worked MSBOA Festival; more slouchy hat, now frogged because the yarn won't slouch, pulled different yarns for DB to choose from
Feb 27 -- Ravenclaw, bulky hat, blue gimlet
