Some FO action for ya! January 11, 2009

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…

    Nice hat! I have just finished knitting my first scarf, and for my next project I want to do a hat. But I’m so new it’s intimidating me.
