Another hat

This is another hat.

I cast on 60 sts using a 2color cast on with 10.5 needles

I knit up the hat with the working color on size 8s. Then once it was done, I picked up the sts on the edge with the size 8s.

I know one row, the increased every third sts on the next row. I repeate this 2 times and got a super cute ruffle.

I would use more rows on the brim to get a true brim, but loving the ruffle.

Farmhouse yarns, I forget which one. I'm allergic to wool? Maybe?

And it's a hat

Yup, it's a hat.

It's that time

As many of you know I took part in the Avon walk for breast cancer in Boston last year. This year I crewed again and was again overwhelmed with the strength and unity of the event.

No knitting today, but I have picked up the needles again to whip up a couple of hats for my cousins new baby. Using my farmhouse yarn, and of course loving it. Nothing fancy, just a simple hat. Even summer babies need to keep their heads covered. I am thinking of doing a brimmed one, that would be fun.

Yes I'm knitting

Originally uploaded by theatreknitter
Okay, so yes I am knitting. This project has been my train project. It is a simple pair of Vanilla socks. I have been knitting in Magic Loop so they are full of ladders and slipped stitches. They were supposed to be worn for the Avon Walk as my Wellness Village slippers, but sadly that did not work out as planned. So here they sit, almost done. I will have them for my new house.

I was going to try something more fancy, but the yarn has a super stripe to it so I didn't want to mess it up any further.

So here is is, my vanilla socks.

So it has been awhile

Okay, so yeah. . it has been quite awhile since I last posted. I get that. For the lack of communication I am terribly sorry. I do have the good reasons for being gone.

This house isn't just another pretty face, on Friday it will be mine

I never thought that I would be dong this, especially so soon. I am so excited for the move.

There is also a new man in my life, his name is martin. he is friendly, enjoys long walks, sleeping, ice cream, and is just about over his peeing in the house.

That's right folks, I got a pug.
