3-28-14: did the decreases on a pair of rough wooden DPNs on an incredibly bumpy gravel road on the way to the Alafoss knitting store outside of Reykjavík. Managed to finish just in time, as we arrived to go shop for more yarn.

3-26-14: Worked on this Hat while waiting for the Northern lights to make their appearance in Iceland. The lights showed only briefly, but I made good progress on the hat, reaching the point where I switched to the larger size needles.

2-13-15: Added the pom pom. And, it didn’t even take me a year.
