A Finished Item!

Yes! I AM alive and I HAVE been knitting!!

proof of both:



For the record, that is the back of my head... and yes it did take me about 100 pictures to get the picture right.

I know lots of people knit sweaters for the upcoming fiber festivals but hey, let's face it, I'm not a fast knitter. Plus I missed the memo saying while not a pre-requisite, a newly knitted item for said festival wouldn't be a bad idea. SO, I knit a hat! It's the Cinchy Hat from Interweave's knitscene. The yarn was a gift to me by my friend Catie. She said they were my colors. And I believe she was right.

The best part, I still have a about a hank and a half left! What to make now...

Looks great! I think you need a pair of fingerless mittens to go with it!

Have a wonderful time at SAFF - that will be the perfect compliment to any outfit (unless it's 80 degrees!)

My vote is for fingerless mitts too.

Have fun!

I love that hat & the color! I'm off to dig out that issue again since it didn't make that much of an impression the first time I saw it.

GREAT hat! It looks wonderful and Catie, I think, is right - - good color.

Enjoy SAFF and if you can, takes lots of pictures too (vicarious enjoyment). ;)
