Do not disturb

You may look at my new yarn if you promise not to wake up Munchkin.

Multiplicity

I managed to squeeze in some time to knit a few hats for k3tog’s Preemie Hat drive.

My goal was to knit as many hats as I could get out of a 68-gram leftover ball of Bernat Softee Baby.  So how many hats was I able to get from that 68 grams?

Chris mentioned that I was knitting a zoo. How very true. Another way to look at it is as a Noah’s Ark, [...]

Gusto!

Today’s post title comes from a comment left by Guinifer last week. It’s a great word; I don’t think I have ever used it in an actual conversation. But it certainly applies here.

My yarn-buying binge did not stop at the 3 Kittens sale. Did you notice (perhaps with surprise) that I didn’t buy any [...]

1-? Hats

I wasn’t very project-monogamous in November. Instead of devoting myself to my gift socks like a good knitter, I took breaks with several quick projects. The first two I worked on were hats.
