Lately, I've been really into knitting. I think it has a lot to do with being physically exhausted at the end of the day but still having a lot of mental and creative energy. I can handle sitting on the couch, watching TV, talking to C, and knitting, but getting up and doing something is almost beyond me. LOL.
Right before Christmas, I decided to make A a new hat. I came across a pattern for fish hats on knitty. They are fantastic! So, I started knitting one.
C claimed it as his right away. "Can you finish it tonight so that I can wear it tomorrow?"
So, I made A a second one.
Now, neither of them wears the fish hat. Sigh. I still think they're a lot of fun.
I've also been trying to knit C a hat for wearing around the house. The first one was made with some great yarn I found on clearance at the local yarn shop. It's a wonderful yarn both to work with and to see knit up. I love the colors and patterns. Too bad the hat was too small. Here it is on Abby.
We gave this one to our friend B.
I knit up a second one in a larger size, but it still was too small, so C won't wear it. Anyone want a hat?
