Progress

We had a brief glimpse of the sun today, in between some snowflakes, and I was able to snap a few pictures with that little bit of light. Ethan modeled the hats I've been working on. I know I've really got to do the whole gauge thing but I just can't be bothered and I'm not friends with numbers. Usually I just try to stick close to the yarn and needle requirements and hope the finished dimensions are correct.

I tried out the London beanie (I keep wanting to call it the London broil. No reason) for Keith and I even added 10 rows cause I could tell it wasn't going to be big enough. It fits me ok but is just too uncomfortably tight on him.














I'm also in the middle of Tychus. It looks big enough, right? I'm hoping it will fit the recipient. We'll see.

You should chat with my daughter Melody. She spends hours crocheting hats from patterns she gets off the internet. I am ashamed to say that she knows more about the whole thing than I do...all I had to do was show her the chain stitch...she took off from there!

That's impressive...I love how many sources and ideas there are for learning skills like that online. My crocheting skills are pretty limited...and rusty.

Ack! Blogger won't let me respond to your comment on my blog...so here is the pattern for the hedgehog :o) You can also buy it as a kit http://www.paradisefibers.net/Fibertrends-Hedgehog-Pattern-p/2174.htm and the knit lites are *really* bright! I almost blinded myself when I looked directly into the tip. So they would be excellent for knitting while watching a movie. THe light is very focused so it's really bright but shoudn't bother others.
