Newest Project

I've made 4 candy corn caps, and think I've pretty much perfected the pattern. I gave one to my neighbor's daughter, so if she posts pics, I'll see if I can put them on here. Anyway, I'm going to work on something called a 'hudson hat'. I bought the pattern yesterday and so far have finished an ear flap and I-cord. Yay!

Here is what a hudson hat looks like:

I'm going to work on the other ear flap, and I-cord, and then comes the brim. The only problem I forsee, the pattern calls for 16" size 7 circular needles, and I have only got size 7 Double Pointed Needles, so hopefully I'll be able to work it out with just the DPN. We'll see. Perhaps a trip to Michael's is in order. I looked at Joann's yesterday and they didn't have circulars in anything smaller than a size 8. Plus, I have a coupon for Michael's for 40% off any regular priced item. For yarn selection, I much prefer Michael's over Joanns.

So it might seem like I only knit. I have recently started knitting, in July. So right now it's my obsession. I am also going to make some organization boxes, and want to paint my living room. I have endless amounts of projects to complete! This blog should get crazy!
