Another Hat

I made another hat for the store. I used Patons Classic Wool and Kertzer Fizz. I definitely like the longer eyelash yarn better. It turned out quite well. I want to make myself one of these hats this year (minus the Fizz) and mittens, but I'd like to wait til I get a new winter coat. I'll probably just end up making grey anyways. Black collects too much cat hair.

The boys found a bunch of trophies in the basement. The Oldest One spied this one with cards on the top. Little card shark that he is, he is using it for a First Place Poker trophy. (It's hubby's first place whist tournament trophy from 1995.) Cards on the top, close enough.

Not much new going on here. Still raking leaves, still plunking on the aran sweater, still working on the second Mystery Sock. Still working on other small projects but trying to concentrate on the aran sweater to get that done and over with. (Gotta start those Christmas gifts!) The boys started skating lessons yesterday.

We also traded in our old camper on one of these that was on sale. We will be getting it on Saturday if hubby is home. (Scroll down to 2007 Keystone RV Springdale 299 BHDS.) Our only problem with the one we had is there was no sofa, just the dinette, so you had to sit on the bed to watch TV or cram into one side of the dinette. (The other side is back-to, sorta, to the TV. If you sit there to watch TV you're gonna get a sore neck.) This one will definitely last us til the boys are in their teens. After that the next step is something like the 2006 Gulfstream RV B Touring Cruiser 5291 located near the bottom of this page. (If you go to my June 2005 archives and scroll to Sunday, June 12, you'll see pictures of the outside/inside of the camper we traded in on the new one.) I was hoping to wait til next year or so, but the camper we are getting was marked down by almost $10,000, and every year we wait our camper depreciates more.

Did everyone see that The Sweet Sheep now offers free shipping on orders over $80?

Happy Knitting!

The hat looks great and I love the green yarn! It will be gorgeous socks!
I didn't get near a yarn shop the whole time I was in England so nothing new to report on there.

Love your hat - that is the cutest felted hat I've seen! I want to see it on a real head - you should model it!
