I've wanted to do the Stone Path Hat (non-Ravelry link; scroll down) by Lisa Naskrant for a long time and after the disaster with the knit jacket, I decided now was the perfect time. I need something that will challenge me and that I can do successfully. This one's a challenge all right - and I'm loving it. The top part of the hat - the part in the photo - is tricky but not hard; I did it at the yarn shop between my crochet student at noon and teaching my class at 6:00. The next part, the sides, is going to require concentration. The instructions for each row are long and complex (at least on the first read-through). I can't wait to get going.

(And yes, Rachel, this one's for Addy too.)
