Testing, Testing

One great thing about being a relatively new knitter, how long do I get to milk this new knitter thing? is that almost everything is new. I joined The Meathead Knitalong and just like that, it's done! I figured I was getting fairly good at hats because it's funny that I live in Florida and knit so many hats I knit a few lately. All we had to do, was test knit and embellish with something of our own choice. I had a ball with this.



Here's a closeup:






I have 2 more hats on the needles, then 2 more to knit. Jeeze, will some one tell these people I live in Florida?!

I'm trying to get my squares off to Firefly for Project Gracious Parcels 2006 as well. Time is running out. I'll also post those when they're ready to go.

I probably will not post until after Thanksgiving, as we're hosting the dinner as is tradition here. There will plenty of turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, some specialty foods and enough sugar to send all the residents of Cuba to college for 4 years.

I am thankful for my family, friends and all the awesome people I "met" right here in Blogville. I appreciate all the inspiration, creativity and talents you all never fail to provide. May you have as much to be thankful for as I do. x

Just wanted to post a Happy Thanksgiving before we all scatter for the holidays. If you are travelling, be safe.

Thanks for wonderful posts. I have enjoyed reading them and look forward to reading many more.

That's pretty cute Carol ... I wouldn't have thought of putting that kind of embellishment on a hat. Looks like a lot of fun.
