i'm knitting again.
christmas is coming.
yep, sooner than you think.
can you all say "knitting for 25 people for christmas" with me?
uh huh. this is my plan.
when i started knitting back in november 08, i thought, 'oooh, i've got to make everyone in the family something for christmas next year. that would be SO awesome'.
i have big plans.
i do that sometimes.
it usually works out...really!
and i am embracing it.
so it has begun.
isn't this baby sweet?
the pattern is called the hurricane hat. you can find it on ravelry. it was incredibly fast & easy & now i am in love with this hat & even, kind of, the yarn. maybe it's the luscious jewel tones. maybe it's the perfect shape. maybe it's because i started & finished it in one shot - no restart or ripping back - that's my kind of project!
if you're interested, hop on over to ravelry. you need to become a member if you're not, but it's worth the wait! that place is SPEC-tactular!
by the way, the yarn here is patons sws, a wool/soy blend. the colorway is "natural plum". i purchased mine at the local michaels store.
