So, I finally got a new computer – alas, all is well with the world! I also have some pictures for you guys!
Russell decided he did actually want me to knit him a hat. So, while I was vegging out at the house on my day off yesterday, I cast on the “Knit Hat – For Anyone!”. Such a simple and quick knit. I think hats with weird, complicated patterns and such are simply unnecessary. I guess I just like ’em plain! Anyways, I finished it in ONE DAY! Hallelujah – I’m getting faster. wOOt! Here it is on the DH. Please ignore his messy office.
Admittedly, it fits my head much nicer than his – he has a big ole’ noggin!
I also cast on and have knit 5″ on the “Pretty in Pink” tank – only mine is a pretty, deep turquoise color.
The miles and miles of K3P2 ribbing was wearing me down yesterday, which is why I started the hat. I needed some instant gratification. I decided not to go with any sort of cotton or a blend of cotton because so many of the people who knit it according to the directions said it stretched out horribly and it was way too big. I knit a smaller size than what I wear (per reviews and the pattern) and I also used an acrylic yarn for more elasticity and wear! Once it’s finished, I think it will become a staple in the ole wardrobe. I plan to work on some more of this before the weekend is out, but first I must cast-on and finish Russell’s REAL hat. It’s going to be chocolate brown and off-white – his choice. The first one was more for fun and to use up this random skein of grey I had laying around. I may confiscate it for myself – it fits me so well!
The Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor is not winning me over yet. We’ll have to wait and see…
