Happening around here! This one done, another on the needles and even more planned. I'm in a hat phase around here. 2 for Kristy's Hat Quest (Ravelry Link) when I finish the one OTN and then I'll do 2 for Hats for Alex. All before the 8th of August, as when the Ravelympics start, I'll be knitting even more hats and cowls. Going to be using a lot of sock yarn stash for that, yes, I'm on the Team Blue Moon Fiberarts. I'm all for knitting with doubled yarns and using the stash :)
Ahh..something about Icord...yes, I love knitting it, can you tell!

You know how I love this yarn...well this hat is perfect for a skein of yarn, as long as you have a contrast color standing by :) As you can see I needed help to finish and had only about 1-2 yrds leftover. Great way to use up a random skein.
My hat model was away , so I had to improvise the photo shoot. I enjoy knitting this pattern, it makes a very thick and warm (I'm sure it is!) hat and good to send to a cold area for wearing.
The last two weekends have had me shopping for the college boy and high school girl! Whew, except for some shoes for the girl, we are done.
There is more college boy shopping to do as a lot of what he needs is specific to the school and he's gotta be fitted for the uniforms, but that's waiting until our trip to Maine in 3 weeks folks!!! Yikes...*scampers off to get some boxes ready**
I love Target's $1 spot. I got 2 of these, some of my favorite childhood candies (heh, who am I kidding, I still eat them!) They'll make good notions boxes to go into my many project bags...
