I present to you Wee Egghead in H20 Hat:
P.S. I've also got a picture of my Wannabe Snow Bunny Ski Hat and Scarf
. (Pretend that I'm wearing a white snow suit and that there's a snow backdrop when you view it. You can also pretend that there's a guy wearing a snappy winter hat and stubble on his chin
sitting next to me on a ski lift, only instead of being called "Pierre" he's named "Monsieur Le Hubby" and has been married to me since 1996.)
So! As you can gather from the photo above, I'm knitting another ChicKnits H20
hat using Colinette in Cream Tea. [Cream Tea closeup here.
] These H20 hats are like chips; you can't stop at just one.
What else? In spite of the fact that I didn't sleep more than two hours a night from Wednesday to Friday thanks to a big project due I still managed to knit High Energy Knit Jenny
's Jo Sharp yarn which is JUST SO FABULOUS how could I not knit it? Jenny sure knows how to pick the good yarns. Here's a preview of what's to come:
All that's left to do is weave in some ends. Looks like there's another finished object on the horizon soon! Which is good, because it allows me to justify the fact that I went to my local Phildar boutique on Saturday morning where I went whack making unnecessary yarn purchases:
More of that fluffy Myriade and some Phil Eponge, both in pink-y beige. I'm a sucker for the muted colors this season. They're the ones that I wear the most so they're the ones I'm knitting the most.
I've also done some fabric stashing. The BIG SALES started on Wednesday, so I decided to head to my favorite fabric boutique in La Croix Rousse for some fabrics. I bought a few meters of a pinstriped gray cotton (for a shirt project we'll be starting in school this month), brown embroidered taffeta and gray satin. There's also some washed denim and a speckled beige wool/polyester blend that I have no idea what I'd use for, but snatched up like a greedy seamstress because the price was nice. I love me a bargain.
