While looking at these photos, I'm thinking maybe someone has been spending too much time in front of the tv. Ernie doesn't like to watch the Olympics, I do. I'll check on things during the day but mostly I watch after he goes to bed-prime knitting time.
I finished up this cute little hat I showed last week. I didn't follow the directions completely because I used larger yarn but I think it turned out cute. I will not be making a hat that fits Mr. Bear's super large head.
I started over on my July socks. I decided to not give up on the gray wool. In keeping with the guidelines of the 12 in 2012 Challenge, I will be doing the heel flap and the toes with the 2 tone yarn.
I went yarn shopping the other day to get what I wanted for Christmas gifts. I picked up 2 large skeins of this yarn to use for 2 scarves based on this pattern. This is the first time I've used this yarn. I am waiting for the run of the white to appear. I don't want this to look like a skunk with the white going right down the center of the hood. If it does, I'll pull the white out and just make a gray scarf. The other skein is black and pink so I'll be on the lookout when I start that one. I do love the gradation and I don't notice it while knitting but it sure shows when I hold it out to admire.
