Thank you knitting friends

November 26, 2007

🙂 I knew what I needed to do… but it helps that others gently shared their thoughts with me… even if y’all were laughing at the keyboard… it’s ok… because I cast on at 3:30 (yes… it took me that long to start.. I had a LOT of cleaning to do from hosting 8 extra people for the Holiday)… and I just took a photo at 8pm of the big girl wearing her cousin’s hat.. (and yes I stopped to eat dinner)… I tried it on too for good measure.. and certainly this bugger should fit a 12 year old boy! 😉

And… to recap…

Swell, knit on size 7 needles (DPNs and 16″ circs), in Moda Dea Washable Wool, Black and True Red

Yahoo! 🙂 One family of Christmas Knits complete 🙂 Now, only 5 more bags, and a few hats and scarves to go 😉 29 days … hmmmm

    Very cool. I really like the waves in that – and at least I know someone else feels my hat pain sometimes 😮 At 3:30? As in AM? Or as in this afternoon? Please tell me PM…. You are a nut!

    I knew the hat would make it in the bag by trip time. Looks very hard, but great hat. My son would like it, it has that cool look to it. I am not good with mixing colors up yet.

    What a GREAT hat! I think I’ll have to cast this on for Sam for a stocking gift. Thanks for the idea! and what a beautiful model, too!

    29 days sounds so good when you say it. There’s hope!! The hats look great… both of ’em. It appears that the first one is loved and has a happy owner, so it’s all good…
