Its hard to believe that we're already a whole week into 2012. Its been very quiet around here and I've had plenty of time to be productive but instead of taking that opportunity, I must admit I've been a bit lazy and have just been vegging out !! If I'm going to achieve my personal goal of 50 hats by end of June, I really must get a move on as there will be other projects I'll want to be doing in between.
My first FO for the year is a favourite pattern of mine - the Addison hat by Julie A Bolduc (free pattern here)
Moving on ... Knit4Charities had their first KAL (knit-a-long) a few days ago which was a lot of fun. We were told to use either pastel or happy bright colours but had no idea what we were making. A certain number of rows were emailed each day and of course there was a fair amount of speculation going on as to what we were doing. Turned out it was a pair of booties ..
Did you notice hat number 12 in that pic? Couldn't waste that left-over yarn. By the way, the colour in the second picture is correct - the lighting must have been a bit off in that first one.
Hmmm now, what to make next ?? A cat blanket, dog blanket, try out a square pattern, more booties ?? I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure. Oohh I can hear "Greensleeves" so Mr Whippy must be in the neighbourhood. Perhaps I'll have an ice cream.
