I was writing a sentence with a point...
Oh yes, so after sitting down with a cup of tea, I determined that knitting on Bruce's sweater right now was driving me insane, and it was time to cheat.
So a year after I made my Snapdragon Tam (which I love, and was the first piece I broke out as soon as the weather got cooler):
I am making the matching Snapdragon Flip-Tops:

And as Bruce just pointed out, I did the hat in the color that Ysolda suggested, which I think is a first for me. However, the color is just so bright and cheery and is so wonderful to wear in the dregs of winter that I couldn't resist. The mitts will match.
I have about three more pairs of Snapdragon mitts to knit for other people after I get done with this pair. One out of madtosh and another out of malabrigo silky merino. However, I'm a little concerned how well the silky merino will hold up as mittens.
Anyway, so yes. I am cheating. I have informed Bruce of this. I'm sure he's disappointed in me, but I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with myself for staying monogamous for a whole month almost.
