YPF: My Blue Period

Normally I gravitate towards red yarns but this year at Stitches I kept picking up hanks of blue.
First the denim Acero for the shawl and then this:

I kept circling, circling, picked it up twice and put it back and then could resist no more and bought a sweater's worth of blue Duet at the Brooks Farm booth.

It's a like a deep blue river.

So why is this cat, who tried to crawl in that hat, looking so sad? Because in less than 24 hours that hat and the head that wears it will be in Maui!!
