Captivated and a Vote
Captivate: To capture as by beauty or excellence. (New Webster's Dictionary)
Recently, I saw a pattern on Ravelry that absolutely captivated my imagination! I couldn't wait to start. With a choice of only dark brown, bright orange or pastel green as a mohair background color, I forged ahead with dark brown because I just could. not. wait. a moment longer. (If you look around, you can tell I don't hate the color brown.)

Four feathers down and several more (about 16) to go, I simply love it. However, note that my tailored, conservative daughter did confirm my suspicions that this does not qualify as an "heirloom knit": as in, she will not really appreciate this one after I'm "gone". LOL! While I on the other hand can hardly wait to don my wings. (Though it does look like I won't be able to take flight for awhile... I'm slow with this one.)
The Monster has a mouth. Now, for a vote: change the green trim to dark b-yue or leave it green?
May something captivate your imagination this week...
