The Snake Becomes Hat!

It seems like I’ve been knitting forever on the brim of this hat… and this morning I finally started working on the crown. It’s a good thing, too. because the time is growing short until I am due to give the hat away to its recipient. It is going well, and is fairly mindless knitting as usual, which is a good thing, because this time of year can be so stressful. I can’t believe the holidays are coming so fast! I hope to be completed with the knitting on the hat by this time next week so I can do the felting process. That in itself can take days! And I don’t have much time to get it right. Help!

And this is the pin I’ve selected to adorn the finished hat. I hope it has enough “Bling” to match the personality of the person who is receiving it!

Knitting DOES Rule!

I may be a latecomer to the party on this one, but I just bought Knitting Rules!: The Yarn Harlot’s Bag of Knitting Tricks yesterday, and WOW! As usual I am enjoying Stephanie’s wry wit, along with her “Pearl”s of wisom! It’s not a hugely solid knitting reference book in the way that “Kniting for Dummies” or “Vogue Knitting” is, but I’m definitely learning a few things along the way… while laughing at the same time! A home run, if you ask me! Be sure to add this one to your Santa list…
