This was my second attempt at a hat. I’m a total noob. I stuck with it and now I have a sweet green warm woolly hat to show for it. I declare this a total success! It’s warm and the color is fantastic. I followed jessibean’s 201 Hat in this yarn for a bit and then kind of finished it on my own. Knitting in the round for longer, so I could flip the ribbed part up for a brim. And a pom-pom for fun. Because pom-poms are fun! And cute!
This past week I finally finished the twisty scarf I was knitting. It’s very exciting to bind off on a project, oh yes it is. But also a little wistful as a treasured project is coming to an end. God. I’m so silly. And premenstrual.
I was glad for some chilly weather here today so I could actually wear it before putting it away in prep for the DC heat.
Don’t you just love mirror shots? 😛
Here’s another for ya:
Apparently both my bathroom AND bedroom mirror are spotty. I plan to clean this week sometime. Today was laundry day. Woo. Hopefully my nausea will subside overnight. Because cleaning and pukey feelings? NOT a good combo man.
Today after church I stopped at SBUX for a coffee and the lady in front of me asked after my scarf and she was so complimentary that it warmed my heart. How nice!
Remember I told you about a scarf I was knitting? Well I did finish it. Yay!
It’s kind of hilarious though, there are mistakes are all throughout. One would think I was drunk whilst knitting. But it’s a big floppy kind of scarf and the way I wear it I’m hoping it’s not obvious there are many errors.
It was good practice though and I’m glad I had the experience with it.
Isn’t the color so pretty? I just love pinks and fuchsia. There is not enough fuchsia in the world!
I like this picture because at this particular angle my nose is there, POW, in all it’s glory.
Did I ever tell you that my sister used to call me “Witchy”? Yep. Because I was the only person in our immediate family that had a nose like this. Bigger, pointy. Everyone else has smaller, rounder, button noses.
But this nose I have. I like it. It’s me. It fits my face. God put it there because it belongs there. And it looks so much like my Gramma Del’s. That’s the part I like the most.
The wool scarf I knitted for Mike:
He says it’s so toasty that he doesn’t always need a coat!
I knitted it using garter stitch, bamboo straights, and Cascade 220 yarn.
Swirl (by MODA DEA), color is Parrot
Homespun, color is Harvest
I think I got it at AC Moore or Michael’s, I can’t remember which.
I don’t know anything about knitting. I just know how to knit scarves. I’m so lame.
I’m lucky I can do this though. I’ve made a few nice, cozy ones.
I used bamboo needles, but I have no clue what size they were.
