recent projects

I have been knitting up a storm. I finished this hat on Monday. I started it Sunday night. It was a quick knit and the perfect use of this yarn I bought this summer in upstate New York. It is so soft and has a hint of silver running through the yarn. The pattern is cute...it can be worn two ways, as a beanie-like hat or a slouchy beret. I am not a hat person and I love it.


I also finished up my sister's Christmas present. Socks. These are the second basic pair I have knit using the magic loop method. The day after I cast off I started a new, slightly more complicated pattern...it is a little hard. But I am working on it.

My trip to visit Cary comes up next week (after the holiday) and I CAN NOT WAIT! I am planning which projects I will bring with me because it will be a long day of traveling. Also he will have to report for duty each morning and may have to work at least partial days so I need projects...I should be studying for my counselor's exam but...knitting is so much more fun!
