A New Hat: Felted

There's been demand for the post-felted Shedir hat. (A couple of comments constitutes "demand", right?). I have to admit that I am not too happy with the results. Obviously, I lost a great deal of stitch definition. See for yourselves:
Felted Shedir
Even this brain's gyri are more pronounced than the cables! (By the way, this is a book cover, not an actual brain. Just wanted to point that out since the picture is so realistic).

But you know what cheers me up? The Yarn Riot! We found a pretty tweed yarn (100% wool! 10 balls for $30!) that I was just itching to buy, even though I couldn't quite figure out what to knit with it. But Gleek came to the rescue and astutely noted that the Sunrise Circle jacket was a perfect match. How did she know that I've been drooling all over Kate Gilbert's design? I like her Equestrian Blazer in this winter's IK too... Sold! This will be stash yarn for a little bit though, because I'm knitting on quite a few projects already. But I'll get to it someday, because this pattern is just too clever. (Aah, the justification of the stash. We've all been there, right?)..
