The knitting is coming along. The Easy Mistake Scarf is starting to look like a scarf. There are some places where my purls and knits are a little off, but I'm not really going to worry about that. (Sorry the above picture is so bad, for some reason I simply can't get a good picture of this particular Work In Progress.)
I tried to start knitting a hat. Tried being the operative word. My circular needles are 24 inches, which obviously would make a huge hat, so I needed to employ the Magic Loop. I failed. Just failed miserably. I *think* part of my problem is the super easy cast on method that I found doesn't have enough bulk or stability or something. I am trying to decide if I should try again or buy double point needles. I'm leaning towards trying again with a different cast on method. (I'd rather not spend a lot of money and it does look like the Magic Loop could be a helpful thing to learn.) Any words or wisdom, advice, encouragements, warnings, etc., are more than welcome!
After my knitting a hat fiasco I needed a quick, somewhat instant gratification, project so I crocheted a cute little Orange Hat for Catherine. Since my girl is just adorable (in my humble opinion) I'm putting together a full blog post on it for tomorrow. (The Orange Hat post is live now!) So for today, here's a little teaser:
My next knitting project will most likely be this Thick and Quick Ribbed Cowl and I am thinking it's time to crochet some more snowflakes!
