craft news

I finished my scarf a week or so ago, and I've been wearing it around, and it's fabulous! I'm glad I finished it in time for the cold spring weather! I have to admit that mom was right; the alpaca is a little itchy on my neck, but it's fine as long as I don't get overheated.

In other knitting news, I started a hat! And, since I took a sick day to nip my cold in the bud, I FINISHED the hat! It looks great, it feels great, and I have enough yarn to make another! It's so exciting!

Now, to bed.

Knitting Fiend

We've replaced your regular aroraborealis with a hat knitting fiend. Let's see if anyone notices!

Yes, I finished another hat today! Very exciting! I was worried that I wouldn't have enough yarn, but that's just 'cause I need something to worry about when knitting. When I'm casting on, I have to worry about whether I've given myself enough of a tail. When I'm getting close to the end of the skein, I have to worry about when to start the new skein. When I'm knitting an item with an distinct end (ie, a hat rather than a scarf), I have to worry about whether I'll have enough, apparently. That's okay :)

I even have enough to make myself a little ear-warming headband kind of thing if I want. Which I should probably do since I don't really have enough of that yarn to do much else with it, and it's awfully nice!
