It's here again...knitting season. I know for many of you out there, every season is knitting season. But for me, knitting is slowly becoming kind of a seasonal thing. It's just kind of hard to knit something and have it sitting in your lap all warm during the summer. This feeling was compounded for me this year by a serious knitting disappointment over the summer that prevented me from being able to pick up my needles right away (let's just say- remember that sweater? it's no coincidence that you never saw the end of that one. It's still in a box and we don't talk about that yet).
Anyways, I'm back in the saddle. I've started working on a scarf, just for me, and it's so nice. I also completed a lovely hat for a friend's birthday. It's just a simple earflap hat, but the yarn makes it oh so nice. It's a mixture of blue sky and frog tree alpaca. I almost didn't want to give it up. Lucky for me, my mom made me this same hat a few years ago, so I already have one. Although I might have to add on some of these ties to my hat. I think I like them.
